Wednesday evening was the kick-off of the fall Caldwell County CERT Basic Training Class for new CERT members. The first night participants learn about disaster and emergency preparedness, CERT organization using the Incident Command System (ICS), deployment, and documentation.

One exercise they successfully completed was to build a five foot tower using nothing but construction paper, tape, scissors, and a couple of small pieces of cardboard. They learned that even strangers with limited resources and a defined goal can be a successful team.
