CERT training course

Post Date:08/10/2018 9:49 am

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program was developed because of the need for a trained civilian emergency workforce. The CERT Program provides for community self-sufficiency through the development of multifunctional response teams who act as adjunct to the county’s emergency services during major disasters. CERT members can also assist with non-emergency projects that help improve the safety of their community. 

The CERT course consists of eight modules, which address: 
• Disaster preparedness 
• Fire suppression 
• Disaster medical operations (2 modules) 
• Light search and rescue 
• Team organization and disaster psychology 
• Terrorism and CERT 
• Course review and disaster simulation 

The next course will be held at the Cedar Park Rec Center beginning on 10/2/18.  Classes will meet from 6:30 PM until 9:30 PM every Tuesday and Thursday night ending on 10/18/18.  This is a free course.

Please register online for the CERT course.
