OMVNA CERT Participation Survey
Greetings OMVNA CERT members,

To better plan our neighborhood CERT response to an emergency, the OMVNA CERT Steering Committee requests information from you, our CERT Member, about your intention to actively serve (or not) in the event of a disaster and what level of participation is likely based on capabilities and training. We understand that circumstances do change and this is for information only and not considered a firm commitment.

In this first section, Please review the following pre-emergency preparations and respond with
your status or intentions as appropriate.
I have a minimum of 3 days (more is better) of food, water and supplies for my household to be used in an emergency. *
My FRS/GMRS radio is accessible and kept charged for use. *
I intend to participate in the OMVNA CERT radio check-in on the first Sunday of every month (channel 21, 5-10 min) *
