Support Services/Rehab

Activation History

One of most important things for First Responders to receive during long responses are proper hydration and nutrition. Already equipped with a supplies, a multi-purpose response trailer complete with John Deere Gator for supply transport, CERT provides a very comprehensive Support Services effort.

With 98 Support Service activations and counting, our unit is much busier than one would think. While our primary function is to assist first responders on long duration responses, we assist wherever called upon. For example, CERT Support helps organize / run our annual Community Emergency Preparedness Day, on 3 separate occasions has ran donation centers, on several occasions has supported 5K events, and on numerous occasions has assisted with traffic/barricade/special event tasks/duties. In addition, those on Support Services have received training in damage assessment, points of distribution, among other skill sets. Therefore, our group can provide an array of services to anyone who requests their services.

To get a better idea of what Suport Services has done, see the activation history below.  If you have any questions or need Support Service Assistance, please call 864-595-5368.
