On January 6, 2010, the NYC CERT family grew by 78 as new graduates from Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens were welcomed by city officials at a ceremony hosted by the New York City Police Academy. Deputy Mayor Ed Skyler, OEM Commissioner Joe Bruno, NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly, newly appointed FDNY Commissioner Sal Cassano, Queens Borough Manager/Queens 10 Team Chief Peter Ticali, and student representative Steven Toro, Bronx 7, were all on hand for the celebration. Volunteer team members from Manhattan 6 NYC CERT assisted with check-in and hosting.
The spring training cycle is scheduled to begin in early March. Click here to learn more about NYC CERT eligibility and training.
