CERT Training

Sign up for our Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) course on April 17-19, 2020.

Learn to be the help when needed. Emergencies can happy any day - accidents, fires, floods, heart attacks, power failures - and when they do, 95% of first help comes from family, friends, and neighbors just like you. Learn to stay safe, stop the bleed, get help and provide support.

Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) prepares you for emergencies and disasters in your home or community. Practice first aid and triage, using fire extinguishers, and basic search and rescue in a casual atmosphere. Build your own evacuation and shelter kits. Class includes 20 hours in one weekend (with breaks for meals) and is for ages 15 and up. It may be the best $10 you ever spent!
