Free Emergency Skills Training: Monterey CERT, Winter 2019

Posted on February 2nd, 2019 by lighthouseave

The next Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) emergency training program begins in Monterey on February 23, 2019. Teens through older adults are encouraged to attend (those under 16 must be accompanied by an adult). Classes continue for 3 consecutive Saturdays for a total of 24 hours of training. Anyone may enroll by sending an e-mail of interest - you will receive a confirmation with class details.

You'll learn about emergency medicine, fire extinguishers, disaster preparedness, shutting off your utilities, rescue, communications when phones fail, and assessing a home or workplace after an earthquake or storm.

The CERT program uses a FEMA curriculum to educate people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist their families and others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT also participates in searches for missing persons, serves as coastal spotters for persons swept out to sea, storm response, and other emergencies.
