Event description

Description

FEMA G-317 Community Emergency Response Team CERT Basic Training and Certification Course.

This 24 hour course consists of two evenings 1830-2130 (Jan 9 and 11), and two Saturdays 0830-1630 (Jan 13 and 27).

The course taught by a Certified Instructor prepares the CERT Volunteer to prepare for, and take care of their family and neighbors in the event of a disaster. When a disaster occurs professional EMTs and other First Responders may be unable to repond to help. We learn how to become our families and neighborhoods "First Responder CERT Team".

The classes include instruction in:

Disaster Preparedness, Fire Safety and Light Fire Fighting, Disaster Life Saving Medical Treatment and Disaster TRIAGE, "Stop the Bleed" Lifesaving Training, Disaster Psychology, Light Search and Rescue, Emergency Communications and much more.

The final day of training includes a 4 hour Disaster Training Exercise where students get to put their new CERT skills to the test.
