Event description

Description

Tuscaloosa County EMA and the Alabama Fire College will be hosting a Community Emergency Response Team Plus (CERT+) program this spring. The CERT program is designed to teach communities the skills to react as a cohesive and valuable asset during emergency situations. Community members who go through CERT will learn the basics of first aid, search and rescue, fire safety, emergency preparedness, and other valuable skills. In addition to basic CERT knowledge, trainees will also go through a storm spotter class and learn about opportunities to volunteer in their communities outside of a disaster response.

The classes will be held as a series of eight 2.5 hour sessions on Thursday nights, beginning January 24, at the Alabama Fire College, located behind Shelton State Community College; from 6 PM - 8:30 PM each night. While the training is free, there is an optional $37 fee for a basic disaster response kit.

The class is open to anyone 16 and older. All students and visitors must be pre-approved Tuscaloosa County EMA. The class will be capped at 35 students. A minimum class size of 18 students is required for training.
