CERT CHRISTMAS POEM
By Cal & Denise Crowe

Twas the night before Christmas when all through the house not a creature was stirring not even a mouse. My CERT ready kit was hung up with care, just in case a major emergency might be there. Everything was quiet, when what should appear, but a Tsunami with water rushing everywhere. I was not worried not even a bit, because I had been trained for this sort of event. I put on my boots, grabbed my hard hat for my head, and reached for my lantern next to the bed. Then out of the house in nearly a jiffy to help my neighbors who were not doing so spiffy. I jogged to the clubhouse to meet other CERTS, who I found responding to rescues and nursing the hurts. May this be a lesson to all those who worry and those who can not get out of their house in a hurry. Would you be fumbled and jumbled in the midst of confusion; or would you like to be a part of our solution? Just six weeks of CERT class will form you fine, for any emergency at your house or mine.

Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
