CERT training (act fast)

Received from EOC SNAP mailing list today:


The Seattle Office of Emergency Management is taking applications for the Winter CERT Training Course. 

About CERT
Following a major disaster, emergency services that people have come to rely on will be overwhelmed and unable to meet the increased demand.  The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Training is a series of courses that are intended to prepare people to take action in the immediate aftermath of a disaster.  The training is a combination of skills based classes that will teach participants about Fire Suppression, Utility Control, Light Search and Rescue and Disaster First Aid, in addition to basic tenants of Emergency Preparedness and Emergency Response.

Because CERT training is designed so each class builds on the previous one, it is important that participants be available to attend all of the classes.  The schedule for the Winter CERT class is as follows.

Tuesday, February 26, 2013                       6-9 PM           
Tuesday, March 5, 2013                               6-9 PM
Saturday, March 9, 2013                              9 AM – 1 PM
Saturday, March 16, 2013                            9 AM – 1 PM

Tuesday, March 26, 2013                            6-9 PM
Tuesday, April 2, 2013                                 5-9 PM

The CERT class is filled on a first come first serve basis.  We will establish a waiting list that will be used ONLY for the winter class.  To register please send your request to SNAP@seattle.gov .  If you have questions please contact Cathy Wenderoth at cathy.wenderoth@seattle.gov or 233-5096.  To learn more about the CERT program you can visit their website at http://www.citizencorps.gov/cert/about.shtm.
