citrus County cert events from 2016
September - Beat the Sheriff
For the past 20 years, Citrus County Sheriff Jeff Dawsy challenged the community to come together and "Beat The Sheriff" in a 5k run that proceeds benefited Jessie's Place, a child advocacy center in Citrus County. In 2016 Sheriff Dawsy ran his last "Beat the Sheriff" 5k alongside his family and supporters. CERT participated by providing traffic control and light first aid along the route.
October - Tillis Hills all-quadrant drill
In October CERT sponsored an all-quadrant drill at the Tillis Hills Recreation Area in the Withlacoochee State Forest. The drill started with four stations: triage, stretchers, radio communication, and cribbing. After participants spent 20 minutes at each station, "victims" that were moulaged by Judy were staged in the preserve. CERT members used their skills in assessing the "victims" and transporting them to the triage area.
Station #1 - Cribbing
Station #2 - Stretchers
