Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Training

Have you ever thought, "What would I do if a tornado struck my subdivision? "What types of natural disasters can happen in St. Louis? We have the answers"... CERT Training is a series of classes that prepares you to help yourself, your family, coworkers and neighbors in the event of a crisis in your community. Through this interesting eight-week series of classes, participants learn about emergency preparedness and receive training in basic response skills such as fire safety, team organization, terrorism, disaster psychology, disaster preparedness, light search and rescue and disaster medical operations. Through a partnership with local emergency responders who are trained professionals and CERT trainers, you will learn lifesaving skills. Once you have completed the eight classes you will conclude training with a full-scale disaster exercise (off-site, Saturday) that will put what you have learned to work in a real-life tornado simulation. Upon successful completion of the training, you will be able to join a local St. Louis Area CERT program to continue to support and help in times where volunteers are needed. This training is free but registration is required.
