Read on to learn about a free emergency response course being offered to the community.
It takes place on Tuesdays from February 5th to April 2nd, 2019, from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., at Durham Tech Orange County Campus, 525 College Park Road, Hillsborough.
From the course description:
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program educates volunteers about disaster preparedness for the 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.
CERT offers a consistent, nationwide approach to volunteer training and organization that professional responders can rely on during disaster situations, which allows them to focus on more complex tasks. Through CERT, the capabilities to prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters is built and enhanced.
This is a 21-hour class and will be delivered over several days. We welcome individuals of all abilities.
