SMFD Adds all SM CERT Responders into MEANS
SMFD has added all SM CERT responders into the MEANS notification system.
There are currently approx. 280 certified CERT responders living within the District. MEANS (Marin Emergency Activation and Notification System) had been used to notifiy SM CERT division supervisors only. It was their responsibility to notify their division CERT's. This has now expanded the system to notify all SM CERT's when the teams are needed for activation. CERT's will be notified by the software program calling your home, and or cell number, to notify the CERT's that an activation is taking place. As in the past, the response plan will not change. All SM CERT's are requested to activate automatically in a large scale disaster. However, wait until activated in smaller isolated events such as localized flooding, wildfire, or winter storms.
