Spruce Creek Fly-In Community Emergency Response Team Training

Spruce Creek Fly-In Community Emergency Response Team Training

Added on October 24, 2016

The Spruce Creek Fly-In Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) participated in a three day training conference by the Florida CERT in Central Florida. There were 19 members who went through the rigorous basic training and three members that received additional advanced training.

The participants donate their time and energy to assist their community in the event a disaster occurs and first responders are not immediately available. In addition to basic skills and knowledge, members gained the important understanding of how crucial teamwork, communication and mindfulness are in preparing for emergencies.

Some of the training segments included how to safely extinguish small fires, medical aspects such as triage, treatment and transport. On the final day, a mock disaster was held at the Volusia County Fire Training Center where they put all the skills learned to valuable use.

The residents of Spruce Creek Fly-In are eternally grateful for this group of individuals who are present and ready to step in when the need arises. Little did they know when training concluded in late August, they would be called on to help the Community prepare for hurricane Matthew. Fortunately, we were spared the worst but this team made sure we were prepared on the front end and that we were safe after the fact. We owe this team our thanks and salute them.

Children's Recreation Committee to Host Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

Children's Recreation Committee to Host Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

Added on May 20, 2016

Attention Spruce Creek Residents!

From the Desk of Jill Kelly,

Spruce Creek Friends, I have recently jumped feet first into chairing the Spruce Creek Children's Recreation Committee. Some of you may have noticed that it has been inactive for some time, but there is a small group of ladies attempting to change that, with a primary focus on our community. Said differently, activities and events for the children, but not all about the children.

First event on deck: Ribbon Cutting Ceremony @ SC Playground - Tues., Jun 7 (4pm-6pm), to include:

  • Brief ribbon cutting ceremony for our new playground shade (which many of you contributed to over the years with large and small donations to the CRC)
  • Kona Ice Truck - sno-cones for all!
  • Play for ALL ages (young and young-at-heart) ... it is a "play" ground after all

 Of course, the playground and other games will be there for the children, but we are also attempting big kid games (volleyball, croquet, corn-hole, ...) to be carried out on the huge lawn there. Will you join me? I am not looking for volunteers or contributions - just smiling participants. Oh, and maybe a Jetmobile if Paul and Susie Holmes are in town!

Tell all your Spruce Creek friends & hope to see you there!
