About this Event

NOLA Ready Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) teaches individuals the important skills needed to help their neighbors and communities respond to different types of disasters, as well as support first responders and community disaster partners in response and recovery efforts. If you are passionate about emergency preparedness and disaster response and recovery for your House of Worship and in your community, this free training is for you!

Through a mix of classroom sessions and hands-on activities taught by emergency management professionals and first responders, the comprehensive 2 day NOLA Ready CERT training program educates participants about disaster preparedness for the hazards that may impact their community.
