CERV-MLHU also provides additional support to municipalities by administering volunteer emergency response. Special skills are not necessarily the main consideration for volunteers to be considered for the CERV program. A willingness to step up when members of the community need help is just as important.
Middlesex County also has trained CERV team members. The MLHU and Middlesex County CERV teams are cross-trained to better serve the needs of the community.
