“The primary purpose of this team is to be the hub of reliable communication — to the radio station and to each other so that our community can receive timely important information,” general manager Michelle Ross said. “As a voice to 13 counties across East Texas, it’s our honor to serve together.”

The CCERT Team formed in 2021 with almost 50 church and organizational leaders in Nacogdoches, Cherokee and Angelina counties committed to staying connected in the event the area faced a major weather event or community-wide emergency.
