CERT classes registration opens

September 17, 2013

By Staff

Join hundreds of community members, and learn how to best help yourself, your family and your neighbors during a disaster.

Emergency responders will not be able to help everyone immediately, so citizens like you can make a difference by using your Community Emergency Response Team training to protect and save lives.

CERT courses include:

  • Disaster first aid training
  • Disaster preparedness
  • Basic firefighting

  • Light search and rescue
  • Damage assessment
  • How to turn off utilities
  • The psychology behind a disaster

The program includes a nine-week course with classes from 6:30-9:30 p.m. every Thursday starting Sept. 26. There will be no class Oct. 31.

Registration costs $35. Learn more and register at www.issaquahcitizencorps.org/cert/cert-class.
