Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT) training


The next round of Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT) training is coming up in April and May.  We encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity.  If you have already completed CERT training, this is a great opportunity to refresh your knowledge and skill.  CERT is primarily a training that teaches you basic disaster response skills to empower you to help yourself and those around you when disaster strikes and no professionals are coming to help.   The training is two-fold; on-line and in-person.  On-line training will focus on knowledge base information while the in-class hands-on portion will focus on actually learning and doing the skills, not classroom lecture. It is very important that you complete the online portion before attending the in-class portion.  The classroom training cost $35 for your supplies.  If you are CERT qualified, there is no cost.

The in-class portion will be Thursday nights, April 11th through May 2nd.
