A messsage from our Valley Center Fire Protection District CERT:
Its been a very busy time for all of us at VCFPDCERT, with many changes and much that has been done.
Our new communications system is being built out, our new Standard Operating Guidelines are being written, a new organization structure is in place and a new training program being put together.
Many good changes in a short period of time, and still much to do.
It has been a great pleasure to work with such a fine group of people as the staff of CERT and the VCFPD over the last year, and I look forward to a productive and fruitful 2013 !

- Jim Courter, VCFPD CERT Coordinator
