Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT) Training


Valle Airport
555 South State Route 64
Friday, August 18 through Sunday August 20, 2017

(attendance required all three days: Friday 6 - 9 pm,
Saturday 8 am to 5 pm, Sunday 8 am - 5 pm)


Following a major disaster, first responders who provide fire and medical services may not be able to meet the demand for services. Number of victims, issues with communications, and road blockages can prevent people from accessing the emergency services they have come to expect at a moment's notice through 911. People may need to rely on each other for help in order to meet their immediate life saving and life sustaining needs.

CERT Training includes:

  • Session I, Disaster Preparedness
  • Session II, Disaster Fire Suppression
  • Session III, Disaster Medical Operations Part I
  • Session IV, Disaster Medical Operations Part II
  • Session V, Light Search and Rescue Operations
  • Session VI, Disaster Psychology and Team Organization
  • Session VII, Course Review and Disaster Simulation
