The Sherman Volunteer Fire Department is looking for new members, but for those unable to join but are still looking to help the community, there's another opportunity. The Community Emergency Response Team is also looking for members. This team would be at the ready for checks on vulnerable people, to do necessary deliveries such as meals for the elderly, monitor community relief stations, and a variety of other important tasks related to long-term power outages and other emergencies. Some of the tasks require no specific skills, but for other activities members will receive training. Any resident interested in becoming part of this team for Sherman is asked to contact First Selectman Don Lowe.
