Registration is open for Community Emergency Response Team training in Issaquah.
CERT training is designed to prepare residents to help family members and neighbors during a catastrophic disaster. The training is important because professional emergency services personnel cannot help everybody immediately, so citizens can use CERT training to protect and save lives.
CERT courses include disaster first aid training, disaster preparedness, basic firefighting, light search and rescue, and damage assessment skills. Participants can also learn how to turn off utilities and the psychology behind a disaster.
The training program is $35. Learn more, and register for the CERT course, at the Issaquah Citizen Corps Council website.
