Basic CERT Training Class

Cribbing 26

Caldwell County CERT is providing the Basic CERT training class beginning February 18, 2016, for new CERT volunteers.

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact Caldwell County and trains them in basic disaster response skills such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist themselves, their families, and others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in Caldwell County, North Carolina.

This is a free, voluntary program that encourages members of our community to be prepared in any emergency.  Individuals, groups of friends and family, and organizations are all encouraged to join us!

Location: Training Room, 3rd floor, Caldwell County Health and Human Services Building

2345 Morganton Blvd SW, Lenoir, NC (Park and enter at the rear of the building.)

Registration: Send an email to caldwellcountycert@gmail.com with your name, address, phone number, and email address. Note if you are attending as a member of a group such as an employer group, civic group, church, etc.
