Montgomery County (MD) CERT successfully performed two initiatives during the March 6, 2013 snow storm (called "Snowquester" in the D.C. region). Initiative 1 had CERT members present in the local EOC to provide social media monitoring support while officials carried on with their primary duties. Initiative 2 tested the effectiveness of sending a mass notification message to CERT members, with minimal notice, to see how many SITREPS could be generated throughout the County.
