CERT Helps in Branson, MO Flash Floods

When flash floods threatened residents of Branson, Missouri, eight CERT volunteers were there to help. Branson Fire and Rescue activated the City of Branson CERT during the flash floods of April 10 & 11, 2008. CERT volunteers went door-to-door, alerting residents of the imminent threat and making them aware of the voluntary evacuation call. CERT members worked in the affected areas along the Taneycomo Lakefront, in Sunset Park, and along Canal Street. CERT members performed above and beyond the initial tasks, remaining on-site after the event to assist with the cleanup process.
