Learn how to prepare for a disaster as a member of a Community Emergency Response Team, or CERT.

Registration is open for CERT fall training. The program starts Thursday.

In the aftermath of a disaster, professional emergency services personnel cannot help everyone immediately, so citizens can rely on CERT training to assist family members and neighbors.

The program typically includes evening classes from 6:30-9:30 p.m. and runs eight-weeks. Cost is $35. Learn more, and register online, here.

CERT courses include: disaster first aid training, disaster preparedness, basic fire fighting, light search and rescue, damage assessment, how to turn off utilities and the psychology behind a disaster.
