Hazmat and Fire Activations

Hazmat and Fire Activations

Our team was busy on Tuesday July 26th. At 11:55am the Canteen was activated for a commercial gas leak at the Walmart shopping center on Coral Ridge Drive North of the Sawgrass Expressway. We had a few members respond to provide hydration. The leak was capped fairly quickly.

At 2:54pm the same day the Canteen was activated for mutual aid at a residential structure fire in Margate. The Canteen and several team members responded to this call. We assisted Margate CERT in providing hydration and rehab. According to news sources the fire started in the garage with a model airplane and was fed by extra jet fuel stored nearby in the garage. You can view some photos in our Photo Gallery or see a video here. We understand the Margate Fire Chief sent our Chief a note of thanks mentioning how professional and efficient our team was.

Thanks to all the CERT members that responded to these two back to back activations.

CERT Activated to Assist with Care of Students After Bomb Threat

CERT responded to Kiwanis Park in Coral Springs to assist with the care of students that were evacuated from Ramblewood Middle School on Thursday, February 18, 2016. A bomb threat was called in to the school at approximately 10:45. Officials evacuated the school to Kiwanis Park, behind Station 64 on Ramblewood Drive. When officials recognized that the evacuation would last for at least a couple of hours, they requested CERT to respond to assist with the distribution of water to the students. Just after 1:30 the all clear was given and the students were allowed back into the school.

Special thanks to Captain Ralph Troino, and members of the inspections division, as well as all of the firefighters from station 64 for their assistance on scene. Their help is very much appreciated!
