GOFFSTOWN, N.H. — The Goffstown CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) will often kick into high gear in a crisis and assist police and fire departments wherever necessary. Now a younger generation will be trained as well.
The Goffstown Teen CERT, for ages 13-17, will be completely trained in the next few weeks, said Cheryl Paquette, a CERT member in Goffstown and New Boston. Members will be stationed primarily in the schools they attend.
