Northshore CERT class starts Sept 11

Monday, September 4, 2017

CERT is an organization of volunteer emergency workers who have received specific training in basic disaster response skills with the intent of supplementing existing emergency responders in the event of a major disaster. 

Following a major disaster, local Fire, Medical, Police, City, and other first responders may not be able to meet the demand for their services. Residents and visitors to our community may need to rely on each other for help in order to meet their immediate life sustaining needs.

The Northshore Emergency Management Coalition CERT program will educate participants about local hazards, basic disaster preparedness, and provide hands on training that includes fire safety, light search and rescue, and disaster medical operations. After completing the CERT academy, volunteers will have the opportunity to participate in additional drills and exercises to keep their skills sharp and continue to enhance their knowledge and abilities.

The next CERT academy will begin on September 11, 2017. Classes do fill up and registration is open to the first 30 that submit a completed registration form along with the $35 class fee.

For more information on Northshore Emergency Management Coalition CERT program or to be sure to be notified as soon as registration begins, contact the program manager at 425-354-1744 or by email.
