CERT classes registration opens
September 17, 2013
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.
