Video–Safety in the Post-Disaster Environment

Here is a good training video for CERT volunteers to review the challenges and dangers of working to assist their neighbors and communities after a disaster has occurred. It covers the importance of protective gear, size-up (think before you leap), and the buddy system. Common post-disaster dangers are reviewed including flooding and contaminated water, downed power lines, falling debris, cuts from broken glass, nails through shoes, back injuries, eye and head injuries, and even getting lost in your own community following a devastating event.
