From the North Coast Community Emergency Response Team:
The North Coast Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) will be available in and around Willard this weekend to assist elderly, disabled and others who are unable to clean up storm damage on their property from this week’s storms. The team can remove branches and other small debris from yards and can carry limbs and other debris to the street.
CERT does not remove large trees or heavy debris requiring the use of special equipment and cannot haul debris to a solid waste location.
The CERT is a volunteer team of specially trained disaster workers affiliated with the Huron County Emergency Management Agency and has been available since 2009 in the immediate tri-county area. The CERT has been developed to meet local disaster needs through Citizen Corps county programs available to the county emergency management agencies. To schedule volunteer help, call the CERT office at 419-602-0758 or contact the Huron County EMA at 419-663-5772. The CERT Office will be open to take calls all weekend.
