CERT New Members Class
Saturday, November 6, 2021
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program educates volunteers about disaster preparedness for the hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as: fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, disaster medical operations, terrorism, and psychology.
Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members who choose so, may be activated and asked to assist during emergencies and non-emergencies.
