CERT Activation for Power Outage in Miami, FL - CERT to the Rescue

During a recent regional and statewide power outage in Miami, Florida, the University of Miami 'Canes Emergency Response Team was activated to assist with traffic management at congested intersections where traffic signals were out. The local police station had previously trained many University of Miami CERT members in traffic management. Their quick response and excellent skills were put to the test in the power outage. The Miami-Dade County Department of Emergency Management & Homeland Security is the host agency for the County CERT Program, and is extremely proud of these great teams.
