News 12 – 1200 Member CERT Training

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]News Anchor: Thanks for staying with us, I’m Rick Holmes!

When a natural disaster strikes people often want to step up and help their neighbors. One very large organization is working Sunday to get that certification needed to help, and provide that help to others.

1,200 members of the World Mission Society Church of God gathered in Hackensack for classes conducted by county emergency management. They were learning about general emergency response, from setting up shelters for people in need and in some cases even pets, as well as how to treat the injured.

Saira Ahmed: Last year when Sandy hit our group, you know, we galvanized almost 500 members to help go from neighborhood to neighborhood, community to community. To gut homes, to cut trees to do everything that needed to be done. So at that time we realized, maybe it’s beneficial if we get an actual certification.

News Anchor: World Mission Society is based in Ridgewood; those who attended are from all over the east coast and all will be certified on disaster response once that learning session is complete.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

    It is a good job that the members of the church of God, take their time to even learn how to help others much better in the future, even though they are the best volunteers I’ve ever known. Even though they should be the ones teaching how others should do volunteer activities, however these classes they took show how humble these Christians are, they are a very good example.

    I want to learn from these humble people of God. Thank You Church of God for helping people in need. May you be greatly blessed.
