As we are in the 2023 Hurricane season, your Rainberry Bay CERT team has been preparing to help our community should we be needed. 

Once CERT sets up our Incident Command Post and Triage Area, the entire clubhouse will be off-limits. This measure is needed to ensure the risk of contamination and/or cross-contamination be held to a minimum. 

Yes, these are troubling times, and some extreme measures are being considered and revamped in order to deal with a disaster.  Your CERT team cannot and will not put ourselves in danger if security measures put in place are broken. We just don’t have enough volunteers to cover this entire community.

We are fortunate in Rainberry Bay to have retired nurses and retired first responders as part of our team, all of whom are willing to run toward the impending disaster.


We count on you, our Rainberry Bay family, to support us by not placing us in further danger and think about the safety of others.


It sounds like something out of a thriller script: 

     "As the country fights to contain a deadly virus, a hurricane rakes the East Coast, knocking out power, disrupting already tenuous supply chains, displacing residents and further threatening millions of lives.  But as coronavirus continues to spread at a time when climate change has increased the destructive potential of a host of natural disasters, the scenario could become a frightening reality -- one that officials and experts say we need to be prepared for. Even in normal times, natural disasters require a small army of government staff, first responders, relief organizations, and volunteers to move people out of harm's way and provide victims with basic necessities like shelter, food, and medicine.”
