The New Canaan Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Training course starts on October 23, 2019.
This program helps train and equip citizens to be better prepared to help themselves and their neighbors in the event of a disaster, crisis or common emergency and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.
CERT offers a consistent, nationwide approach to volunteer training and organization that professional responders can rely on during disaster situations, which allows them to focus on more complex tasks. Through CERT, the capabilities to prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters is built and enhanced.
The fall course consists of six sessions in New Canaan.
Wednesdays, 7 PM to 10 PM: Oct 23, Oct 30, Nov 6, Nov 13
Saturdays, 8 AM to noon: Oct 26, Nov 9
