CERT Basic Training is designed to prepare you to help yourself and to help others in
the event of a catastrophic disaster. Because emergency services personnel will not be
able to help everyone immediately, you can make a difference by using your CERT
training to save lives and protect property.
This training covers basic skills that are important to know in a disaster when
emergency services are not available. With training and practice, and by working as a
team, you will be able to protect yourself and do the greatest good for the greatest
number after a disaster.
The target audience for this course is individuals who desire the skills
and knowledge required to prepare for and respond to a disaster.
Individual Topics Covered:
--Fire Safety and Utility Controls
--Disaster Medical Operations
--Light Search and Rescue Operations
--The CERT Organization
--Terrorism and CERT
