If you’ve been thinking about taking the training, this is your chance. You can attend any of the CERT trainings in the County or sign up for the one nearest you. Most classes are offered on two successive Saturdays. Novato offers the class in February on a Wednesday and Friday. In April, San Rafael is trying something new, providing two Thursday evening classes followed by an all-day Saturday class. Find the timing that works for you.
Volunteer to help
If you’ve already taken the training but would like to help in the class, please email Maggie Lang at firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember, as a CERT graduate you can take the class again for free and we’d love to have you! We are always welcoming people (CERT graduates or not) to be volunteer victims in our disaster simulation.
If you’re not sure you want to take the class, this is a great way to see how the students put all their skills together on the final day to set up a command post, do search and rescue, fire suppression and set up a medical treatment area.
