Welcome to City Focus - the Podcast from the League of Oregon Cities

Sep 19, 2019

In honor of National Preparedness Month, we are rereleasing Episode 16 of City Focus, featuring Emergency Manager for the City of Salem, Greg Walsh and Salem CERT Senior Trainer and Logistics Officer, Terry Pickett.

National Preparedness Month is recognized each September to promote family and community disaster and emergency planning now and throughout the year.

We discuss how the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program trains volunteers to assist communities when a disastrous event overwhelms or delays the community’s professional response.
