[ARCHIVED] - Register Now: Emergency Preparedness Training -

When a disaster occurs, professional emergency services personnel will not be able to help everybody immediately.

That means people like you can make a difference.

Join more than 300 people in your community who have already completed training for a Community Emergency Response Team, or CERT.

CERT training is designed to prepare you to help yourself, your family and your neighbors in the event of a disaster. Registration is now open for the fall session.

The program includes a course with evening classes from 6:30-9:30 p.m. The class will be held weekly on Thursdays from Oct. 1-Nov. 19, 2015, and will include a hands-on disaster simulation drill on Saturday, Nov. 14.

A $35 fee covers course materials and a basic emergency backpack kit.

CERT training is a great opportunity to broaden your readiness knowledge, study new skills and get involved. Learn the basics of personal preparedness, how to use a fire extinguisher, triage injuries and perform basic trauma first aid.

To register and learn more, email Susan Waters.
