Flash Archive

Prior to the introduction of Spotlight in 2016, SERT's communication tool was the Flash. This piece is retired now but our past issues will always be available here. For easy reference, we've sorted and consolidated the archive by topic. Please refer to Spotlight for up-to-date news from the SERT program.
