CERT training course
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.
