CERT Training — October 26-28

A FREE CERT training class is available to the public on October 26-28.   Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is about readiness, people helping people, rescuer safety, and doing the greatest good for the greatest number. CERT is a positive and realistic approach to emergency and disaster situations where citizens will be initially on their own and their actions can make a difference.

Through training, citizens can manage utilities and put out small fires; treat the three killers by opening airways, controlling bleeding, and treating for shock; provide basic medical aid; search for and rescue victims safely; and organize themselves and spontaneous volunteers to be effective.

CERT training is a commitment of 20 hours of training. Only those who successfully complete the practical exercise with hands-on instruction in fire suppression, search and rescue, cribbing, and medical aid, will receive a certificate of completion.

Class size is limited to 25 people.  San Jacinto residents will have priority registration; a waiting list will be initiated on a first-come/first-served basis for nonresidents.

To register call (951) 487-7386 or email bmulcock@sanjacintoca.us.   The flyer and registration form for this event is at http://www.ci.san-jacinto.ca.us/news/pdfs/2012/10-26-12_CERT.pdf.
