Miami-Dade CERT Training – Free Disaster Preparedness Course

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program 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. Using the training learned in the classroom and during CERT exercises, members can assist their community or workplace following an emergency event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. This free training includes an online lecture portion followed by an in-person, hands-on, practical portion.

There are 4 HYBRID classes coming up for NEW CERT members –

As a hybrid, anyone interested will need to complete Phase 1 which is the ONLINE part and it must be completed in order to attend the in-person training (Phase 2). https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdQV6aDT0wqAa_IFNqkXrImqxH49kDCCOlfYOvuzmuo6DRMkw/viewform

2021 HOA Board Elections Vote

Generally, the HOA has its annual membership meeting and election of officers and directors for the calendar year in early February. But this year will be different due to necessary Corona Virus protocols.

So that members can still vote, the proposed slate of officers and directors, as developed over several weeks by the nominating committee, is listed at the bottom of this post.

Our by-laws provide that only members who have paid their annual dues ($30) are entitled to vote. So, we ask that members entitled to vote review the slate and send an email with your name and the word “approve” if you vote for the slate. If you choose to not vote for the slate, you may so indicate. The deadline to vote is 5:00 pm on Feb. 5, 2021. The results of the vote will be announced at the Board meeting on February 10, 2021.

Renew or register today at www.skyhighhomes.com to pay 2021 dues and become a member of our HOA.
