The CARES training objectives are:


General Meetings

The focus of CARES monthly general meetings are for our members to review the roles, processes, procedures, and responsibilities that we will encounter during an activation.  This training directly support our mission and the CARES Certification Program.

The training sessions are usually informal, held during our monthly general meetings, and are intended to elicit constructive discussion by the membership as we examine our emergency management policies and procedures.
