Community Emergency Team Seeks New Members

What is CERT? Community Emergency Response Team

CERT training focuses on increasing the level of SAFETY for those individuals who will be stepping forward to assist after a disaster. CERT promotes a partnership between emergency services and the community members they serve.

In the wake of a disaster, emergency personnel and their resources may be overwhelmed by the response needs in the community. CERT training gives individuals a glimpse into the ‘System’ designed to save lives in the most efficient and effective manner possible.

The training is available for all citizens who are interested in disaster and emergency preparedness.

When: Saturday February 5, 2011
From 8:00am - 4:00pm
