Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Training Opportunity Begins Soon
The Stutsman County Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC), in conjunction with the North Dakota League of Cities, is sponsoring a citizen-based emergency response program called Community Emergency Response Teams or CERT. CERT training is free and is open to all citizens 18 years or older.
CERT is a training program that educates citizens about the hazards they face in their community and trains them in lifesaving skills. The Stutsman County CERT training program is administered in five components consisting of four evening classes and one disaster simulation activity. The components include fire safety, light search and rescue, medical triage, emergency family preparedness, and disaster psychology.
Class will be held at the James Valley Career and Technology Center Jamestown, on October 2, 4, 9, 11 and 15 from 6:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. To enroll call 701-252-8841 or 910 12 Ave NE Jamestown. Close date for the enrollment is Monday September 24, 2012. Attendance to all classes is required for certification.
