TIME TO BE TRAINED -- CERT TRAINING


From: Berwyn Heights CERTS [mailto:berwyn.Heights.CERTS@hotmail.com]

Subject: Certified Emergency Response Training (Cert) Training Available

CERT training available on March 9 & 10th.  This class is part of a national program to train people how to prepare, mitigate and respond to natural and man made disasters.  CERT is about readiness, people helping people, rescuer safety, and doing the greatest good for the greatest number. CERT is a positive and realistic approach to emergency and disaster situations where citizens will be initially on their own and their actions can make a difference. Through training, citizens can manage utilities and put out small fires; treat the three killers by opening airways, controlling bleeding, and treating for shock; provide basic medical aid; search for and rescue victims safely; and organize themselves and spontaneous volunteers to be effective.

The class will be from 8 am to 4 pm Saturday and Sunday, March 9th and 10th, at the Berwyn Heights Town Hall5700 Berwyn RoadBerwyn HeightsMD 20740
Please wear comfortable clothing and hard soled shoes.
