Sunday, August 11, 2019

Are you ready for a major earthquake?

How about another nasty winter storm?

If not, the Northshore Emergency Management Coalition is offering two CERT classes this fall to prepare you with basic disaster response skills.For the fall of 2019 NEMCo will be offering two CERT classes. One “regular” CERT and one TEEN CERT. 

Both will begin on Monday September 9, 2019. The regular class will be held during the day 9:00am  –  Noon and is open to everyone. 

The TEEN CERT will be Monday evenings from 6:30 – 9:30pm with the final disaster simulation for both classes held on Saturday October 26, 2019 9-Noon. 

Registration is now open! Classes do fill up and registration is open to the first 30 students that submit a completed registration form along with the $35 class fee. (Scholarship are available).

NEMCo 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 Teen class also earns participants valuable community service hours!
