Community Emergency Response Team Training Opportunity!!!
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program educates volunteers about disaster preparedness for the hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. CERT offers a consistent, nationwide approach to volunteer training and organization that professional responders can rely on during disaster situations, which allows them to focus on more complex tasks. Through CERT, the capabilities to prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters is built and enhanced.
At the same time, the CERT program was designed as a grassroots initiative and specifically structured so that the local and state program managers have the flexibility to form their programs in the way that best suits their communities. CERT volunteers are trained to respond safely, responsibly, and effectively to emergency situations, but they can also support their communities during non-emergency events as well. There are over 2,700 local CERT programs nationwide, with more than 600,000 individuals trained since CERT became a national program.
CERT training will be Saturday February 17, 2018 and Sunday February 18, 2018 at the Weston Lakes Country Club at 32611 FM 1093 Road in Weston Lakes (Fulshear address) from 8: 00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Light breakfast will be included in the training and lunch will be provided (buffet.) Cost is $11 per person but Simonton Emergency Operations Committee will cover all Simonton participants’ lunches. If you are interested in attending, please contact Ed Norman at the Fort Bend County Office of Emergency Management by phone at 281-342-6185, or email at email@example.com.
