Agenda Click here for the agenda.

Registration – We plan to use the DEMHS Training Calendar (click on highlighted text for the link to that site) to post the final training program schedule and registration purposes, beginning next week. There is no cost to attend, however, advance registration is required.

We are also planning on the following:

Team Asset Display – An area designated for the display of Team assets throughout the day.  If your CERT Team is interested in providing a display, please contact Citizen Corps Chair Mark Amatrudo at mark.amatrudo@wiltonct.org no later than October 26, 2018.

Citizens Corps & DEMHS Update – During lunch, we plan to provide the annual updates from the State Citizen Corps Council and DEMHS senior management.

Possible Additional Training Day In Early 2019 – We are hoping to provide a second delivery of most of these training programs in South Central Connecticut in early 2019.  The final decision will be based on available funds and the ability to secure a viable location to do so. 


A significant amount of work has gone into the planning for this Training Day and the development of customized training programs. Those programs are based on feedback received from those attending the 2017 Training Day, the missions of our Teams/Units and also provide a balance between basic and advanced levels of students.
