APN General Preparedness Columnist
My name is Thomas Kemmett, I live in North Olmsted (near Cleveland, Ohio) with my wife and daughter. I am 54 and I unload ships for a living. I have been a Teamster for 27 years. Before that I had numerous jobs such as a corrections officer for five years. I am a hunter (both bow and gun), camp and fish. I have written an outdoor column for the local newspaper, the West Life. I am on the advisory board for CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) for the last three years, and I was a founding member. I was part of the team that wrote the charter for CERT in Cuyahoga county. The CERT program covers five different cities in the west shore area of Cleveland.
