This is a new nation wide thing this year. I disagree with it. I also view it as a CERT liability thing if they didn't state this.
I don't have a ccw, but figured if there was anything hostile about the environment or situation, CERT is not going to allow their members to go in. Also, if you find something unsafe, hostile or uncertain...LEAVE, take care of yourself first.
We all want to help, but you will be doing more good for more people if you let the pro's handle the situation instead of you trying to and getting hurt. If you do, we just end up with more people injured or dead and then the CERT group becomes two people short. (We always work in teams)
