When Disaster Calls - How Will You Resond?

The Cities of SeaTac, Burien & Kent RFA are offering the FEMA-sponsored Community Emergency Response Team training at no charge starting April 16, 2015.

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates residents about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area well being and provide training on basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the lessons learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist 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 their community.

The CERT program will provide 21 hours of training, plus a simulated disaster drill. Classes are held each Thursday, 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM for seven weeks. The final drill and graduation are held on Saturday, May 30 from 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM

When the next disaster strikes,
                         will you be sufficiently prepared to respond?
