To the Editor:

Regarding a column published on Page 2B, April 10, by Debra Beatty about the CERT class (“Local CERT class graduates April 28”)

I don’t know if I read this correctly about this being the first CERT class here in Mesquite, I know for a fact that I and several others went to the first class in March 2004 and I along with several others did this for a few years. As for me I went to work after a year off being retired, and could not attend the meetings from about 2006. Now that I retired again, I hope to get more involved with the CERT as it is a great thing that they do and if we are ever in a time of need this is really the place to be.
