City Council recognized volunteers in Allen’s Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) and Citizens Fire Academy Alumni (CFA) at the June 8 Council Meeting.
When Allen Fire Department requested support from these groups for its COVID-19 vaccination hub, Allen CERT and Allen CFA stepped into action. These community volunteers served more than 4,000 hours in their supporting roles that helped vaccinate 50,000 people.
Fire Chief Jon Boyd personally thanked the groups for their time and commitment to the task.
“The vaccine hub would not have happened without these volunteers,” said Chief Boyd. “With the help of these volunteers, our hub was the biggest vaccine provider in Collin County. This was done without federal aid and without a private company—it was done by our community.”
Thank you to our volunteers at Allen CERT and Allen CFA!
