Toys for Your Backpacks

Last Thursday, more than 20 of us gathered in the roomy bay at Station 5 and shared ideas and examples of practical gear for CERT Responders. We examined it all, from apparel to bag styles to tools and medical supplies.

This year we took a different approach to the show-and-tell, going categorically instead of round-robin, which provided a much more interactive discussion as we stopped to philosophically discuss items of a similar application.

Captain Clamon’s team injected a wealth of insight throughout the evening and even gave us a demonstration of how to apply an Israeli compression bandage. We are grateful to our friends in the Allen Fire Department for their commitment to our growth and sustainability.

If you missed it, don’t worry – we documented all of the “cool” items and posted it online. Click here to take a look
