The CERT meetings will be held at the Fire Station at 3650 Hoover Road, Grove City, OH at 6:30pm. At these meetings we will do a short overview of our Grove City CERT program so it is an opportunity to bring a friend that may be interested in the CERT program and helping our community to be prepared for emergencies.

Some of the training and exercises will be hand-on and you should wear clothing appropriate for this (probably not shorts, sandals, dress clothes).
