On Friday, September 21st, the Town of Babylon hosted a barbeque for the Town of Babylon Community Emergency Response Team members and their spouses as an expression of appreciation. This team educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. The barbeque took place on a beautiful evening at the Deer Park Fire Dept. North Property Pavilion. Certificates of Appreciation were distributed to all CERT members.
