Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training class starts Jan. 15


mltnewsCommunity Emergency Response Team (CERT) training is designed to prepare you to help yourself, your family and your neighbors in the event of a catastrophic disaster. The next session runs from Jan. 15-March 5 at the Northshore Fire Station.

Professional emergency services personnel will not be able to help everyone immediately, so citizens like you can make a difference by using your CERT training to protect and save lives. With training and practice, you will be able to do the greatest good for the greatest number of people after a disaster, while helping prevent yourself from becoming a victim.

CERT training includes:

  • Emergency preparedness
  • Fire safety
  • Light urban search and rescue
  • Medical triage and treatment
  • Damage assessment
  • Incident command
  • Disaster psychology
  • Terrorism

The Emergency Services Coordinating Agency (ESCA) began providing CERT training in 1996. Since then, it has graduated over 800 citizens from the program.

Thursday nights, Jan. 15-March 5, from 7-10 p.m.
Northshore Fire Station 51
7220 NE 181st St.
Kenmore, WA 98028-2711
