Arizona’s Chino Valley Review on Oath Keepers CPT
Oath Keepers national salutes Arizona’s Chino Valley /Yavapai Oath Keepers, who have earned a strongly supportive newspaper article with their Community Preparedness Team (CPT) activity. Jim Arroyo is doing an outstanding job there, while also serving the Arizona State Chapter as Vice President alongside SCP Gerald Rhoades.
The local Chino Valley Review has published a fine article about Arroyo’s Oath Keepers, and that article can serve as an example of our Reach, Teach, and Inspire (RT&I) mission. The readership there will yield more volunteers to swell the ranks of Jim’s CPTs. Here is the link to the article in full, but I’ll add a few teasers below —
From Salina Sialega’s coverage —
Oath Keepers is a nationwide non-partisan association that has Community Preparedness Teams (CPT) whose members work to get trained and ready to help in times of disaster to individual communities. In addition, the association supports FEMA’s approach to disasters that says all citizens should be prepared for “self-rescue and self-supply” for at least 72 hours.
The quad-city area Oath Keepers chapter, led by its president, Jim Arroyo, meets monthly for training and organizing its five CPT teams of Emergency Medical, Emergency Communications, Security/Team Tactics, Emergency Engineering and General Preparedness. Meetings also include guest speakers, such as Dave Hodges at the May 23 meeting at the Chino Valley American Legion Hall.
About 75 people attended the May 23 meeting, including Frank and Judy Davidson of Dewey. Frank sees the organization as one that encourages people to plan ahead…
Arroyo also serves as the Arizona State Oath Keepers vice president and CPT State director. The Yavapai County chapter began in January 2014. Arroyo is an Army Ranger veteran who was part of a team that carried out a hostage rescue in Iran in 1980. With Oath Keepers, Arroyo works with local government officials, and fire, sheriff and emergency leaders.
