Are you prepared to help your family and community members when disaster strikes? You will be once you complete Community Emergency Response Team training offered by the City of Marysville.
The upcoming program runs Tuesdays from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. beginning Sept. 22 and ending Nov. 10 at Marysville Fire Station 66. Registration deadline is Friday, Sept. 18. The course must have a minimum of 15 registrants.
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is an eight-week program that educates community members about disaster preparedness for hazards that could affect their area and trains them in basic response skills - including fire safety, search and rescue, and medical operations.
The eight-session course will provide a variety of disaster planning, recovery and survival skills aimed at assisting our community in disaster response and recovery. Marysville citizens, as well as business owners, are encouraged to participate or send employees to these free emergency preparedness classes.
