Teen Emergency Response Team Gets Tarp Donation for Disaster Preparedness
Mid America TEEN CERT program receives TarpsNow donation of “triage tarps” to prioritize response team efforts in a major disaster scenario. “It’s not a question of if; only when.”
“We appreciate the generosity of TarpsNow in donating these color coded tarps.”
Mid America TEEN CERT program director Mark Rosenblum today acknowledged the donation of heavy duty “triage tarps” designed to help the teen training group organize their response to a major disaster. Mr. Rosenblum said: “We appreciate the generosity of TarpsNow in donating these color coded tarps.” TarpsNow is a leading online resource for tarps and related protective materials.
Mr. Rosenblum continued: “In an emergency situation with multiple injuries or casualties, it’s important to be able to quickly organize your response team to treat the injured by the severity of the injuries received. We can do that by organizing the response area into a triage grid with red, green, yellow and black tarps. That’s what this donation from TarpsNow will allow us to do.
TarpsNow CEO, Michael Dill said: “We know that disasters can strike, anywhere, at any time. That’s why we’re happy to be part of the effort to support Mid America TEEN CERT. They’re performing a valuable and important service in giving teens the kind of hands-on training they need to help their community in a disaster scenario. Because it’s not really a question of if a disaster will strike; only when.”
Mid America TEEN CERT is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization providing emergency preparedness training for teens and adults in a safe, controlled environment. Its work is supported entirely by the generous donations of individuals, businesses and corporate sponsors.
