Crow Wing County Lakes Area Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is looking for volunteers.
Web posted August 12, 2014
The CERT Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training 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.
Local Law Enforcement, Fire, 1st Responders and Emergency Management will conduct a training program for community members, providing information about local hazards and appropriate actions to take to prepare for and respond to when emergencies happen.
There will be an informational/signup meeting held at the Brainerd Fire Hall on August 21st 2014 at 6:00 p.m. for citizens that interested in joining the CERT
