Shoreline to offer free CERT emergency response training - register now

Wednesday, September 19, 2018

In October, Shoreline will be offering Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training. 

This training teaches participants some basic disaster response skills such as basic fire suppression using fire extinguishers, utility control methods, basic disaster search and rescue techniques as well as disaster first aid.

The training culminates with a full scale disaster drill that allows the class to put their new skills to work.

There are no special skills or previous first responder experience required to attend and this training is free.

The purpose of this training is to get residents trained in basic skills that will allow them to help their neighbors in times of disaster when first responders may be unavailable.

This training will take place over several nights and all classes must be completed in order to graduate. 

The dates and locations are:

Unit Subject
Units 1 and 6 -Intro and CERT Organization
