2019 Bike MS: BP MS 150 Skilled Volunteers
Welcome to the BP MS 150 CERT Breakpoint Controllers Program!
CERT Breakpoint Controllers provide traffic assistance to cyclists at the entrances and exits of the breakpoints. Primary responsibilities include providing a safe environment for cyclists to dismount and directing cyclists to the bike lay down area. Breakpoint Controllers help ensure cyclist safety by keeping bike traffic continuously moving, encouraging the cyclists, giving information and creating an orderly, enjoyable atmosphere.
QUALIFICATIONS: CERT volunteers must be at least eighteen years of age, have completed FEMA sponsored CERT training, provide emergency contact information, sign an event release statement, attend a scheduled orientation (new volunteers), and attend a pre-event team organizational meeting (all volunteers). Most but not all assignments require a two day commitment.
