Community Emergency Response Teams Being Formed

Community Emergency Response Teams Being Formed

certCommunity Emergency Response Team (CERT) training is scheduled for volunteers from across Potter County. Instruction will be held at the Roulette Firehall. The 20-hour class begins Tuesday, April 27, at 6 pm. Other sessions are Tuesday, May 4, 6 pm; Saturday, May 15, 9 am; and Tuesday, May 18, 6 pm. There is no fee. Lunch will be provided on Saturday.

CERT is a group of community members trained in disaster preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation techniques. The team responds to help neighbors during disasters. CERT members will learn to recognize and mitigate hazards in the home and workplace. They’ll also learn safety procedures, such as how to use fire extinguishers; disaster medical treatment procedures; search and rescue techniques; disaster psychology techniques; how to handle situations involving animals during a disaster, and terrorism awareness.

Those who plan to attend the training should register by contacting Potter County Department of Emergency Services by April 23 at 274-8900 or potterema@zitomedia.net.
