Elma CERT and EMPact America of New York invite you to learn how to protect yourself, your family, your friends, and your neighbors during times of crisis and disaster! FEMA trained instructors from the Elma CERT team will provide expert instruction to train you with the skills you need in an emergency situation.
Come join us for a FREE Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Training program that educates citizens about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their community. CERT teaches basic disaster response skills such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.
Learn in a classroom setting and practice skills necessary in an emergency. CERT members can help others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help by joining their local CERT group. Western New York has active teams in Elma, Cheektowaga, Grand Island, Lancaster and West Seneca.
*The class will be every Monday and Thursday for four consecutive weeks starting Monday, March 13th. Class will run from 7-9:30 pm each evening.
