In response to the Glass Fire in the Deep Park area
ACCERT has been placed on SELECTIVE DEPLOY as a result of a wildfire in the Deep Park area called the Glass Fire. We expect to remain on a SELECTIVE DEPLOY status until September 30th, 2020.
This deployment takes priority over the ongoing COVID-19 SELECTIVE DEPLOY status and Berryessa SELECTIVE DEPLOY status.
The Glass Fire began on 9/27 at 0600. The Deep Park area is under a mandatory evacuation order. Angwin is under a evacuation order.
Napa CERT teams will assist Napa CART by establishing a command post and operating communications at the Napa Valley Horseman’s Association.
Additional missions for CERT may be possible but are still undetermined at this time.
Individuals who would like to volunteer and have completed CERT basic training should provide their availability through this form as soon as possible.
Weather conditions and smoke from wildfires may pose safety hazards. All personnel are advised to be aware of these conditions and act accordingly. COVID-19 safety protocols are still in effect. Visit our Realtime Information page for additional links for situational awareness.
SELECTIVE DEPLOY is an advisory that CERT team leaders have been notified of a scheduled emergency management activity which will require extended CERT assistance during an incident. CERT leaders will schedule volunteers for the activity once availability has been determined and confirm with each individual. Specific deployment instructions including rally point, date, time, activity and equipment requirements will be provided with the confirmation. Planning leaders will report their schedules to the Napa County OES or coordinating official as soon as possible. Upon completing the scheduled activity, the team leader will provide the appropriate contact with an updated status and results of the activity.
Deployment is only authorized for CERT volunteers who have been directly contacted and scheduled for deployment
