The Issaquah Citizen Corps is kicking off the new year offering a Community Emergency Response Team class in a new short format. The training focuses on personal readiness and disaster preparedness skills.
Classes are from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays starting Jan. 18, at the Issaquah Public Works building, 670 First Ave. N.E. Cost is $35 and covers course materials and a basic CERT backpack.
The four-week class culminates in a disaster simulation drill March 8.
Karen McManus, president of the Issaquah Citizen Corps, said the new courses are the result of popular demand.
