Gathering Places

  1. Garages of 1371/1373 Crown Drive
  2. Garage of 1322 Crown Drive
  3. Garage of 530 Queens Road
  4. Garage of 556 Kings Road


  1. Make sure all is safe in your unit.

  2. Dress in good shoes, warm clothes, and hard hat with light.

  3. Turn off your water and gas.

  4. Tape OK sign to your garage if all is OK.

  5. Put 2 fire extinguishers out front of your garage.

  6. Make sure you have your cell phone.

  1. Grab your Team 1 Radio and Logistics Backpack that includes:

    • lantern (insert 3 AA batteries from bag, 3 AA extras included)
    • clipboard
    • paperwork
    • pen
    • NOAA radio (if included, only 6 in the HOA)
    • walkie-talkies (if included, insert 3 AAA batteries from bag)

    The lantern bottom unscrews to insert the batteries. To add batteries to the walkie-talkies, remove the belt clip. This is done by lifting the small tab on the belt clip and pushing up. Once the clip is removed, the battery compartment can be opened. The batteries are kept in a zip lock bag to avoid damaging everything in the event of battery leakage during storage. The rechargeable batteries and USB-charger that came with the walkie-talkies is also in the bag but is not immediately needed.

  2. Go to your Neighborhood Gathering place and meet your CERT leader. If no leader is present in your gathering place, check the other 3 sites until you find a CERT leader.

  3. At the gathering place, meet with other volunteers and divide up the duties.



  • Assist CERT team leader to sign in volunteers (Crown Harbor Emergency Response Volunteer: Sign In and Sign Out Sheet) and send out volunteers in pairs. Team 1 will keep the Crown Harbor Emergency Response Volunteer: Sign In and Sign Out Sheet up to date so that we know where volunteers are at all times.

  • Monitor the NOAA radio for news related to the emergency.

  • Monitor communications from cell phone or walkie-talkie for questions and updates from teams.

  • Keep log of all transmissions on cell phone or walkie-talkie, especially related to first aid, ambulance, or utility team assistance. Use the Crown Harbor Emergency Response Communication Log.

  • Facilitate communication between the CERT leader and all of the other teams.

  • With CERT leader, send out team to CERT Shed and collect emergency supplies for your team. The combination is in the password-protected Crown Harbor directory.

  • Assist CERT leader with setting up other team duties.

    • Team 2: Search and Rescue Team
      • Assign Search and Rescue Buddy Teams.
      • Have the first team seek out elders and disabled.
      • Divide up Search and Rescue teams according to how many volunteers you have.
    • Team 3: Utility Team
      • Assign a Utility Team buddy pair from the Lower Crown Neighborhood to turn off water main.
      • Assign a Utility Team buddy pair from the Queens Road Neighborhood to check gates to be sure they can be opened if needed. See the Gate Release Document. Call Tom Burns if there is a problem.
      • Assign a Utility Team buddy pair from the Kings Road Neighborhood to open the CERT Shed, bring the wagon out with fire hoses, and leave it by the fire hydrant at the Queens/Kings intersection.
    • Team 4: First Aid Team
      • Maintain contact with the First Aid Team by walkie-talkie, cell phone, or whistle.
