Storey County Community Emergency Response Team (C.E.R.T.) Volunteers Help Keep Senior Citizen Properties Clean

The Storey County C.E.R.T. volunteers and representatives from the Virginia City Eagles Aerie came to the assistance of Storey County Seniors during the annual free dump services provided by Waste Management.

Working with Stacy Gilbert of the Storey County Senior Center, C.E.R.T. volunteers worked to haul trash from Storey County Seniors who had trash but needed some help getting the trash to the dump. Timing the effort with the annual Free Dump Days provided by Waste Management, the C.E.R.T. Volunteers turned in a win-win for Storey County.
