Corte Madera CERTs Conduct SAR Training

Corte Madera CERTs held a Search & Rescue (SAR) training on July 27; ten CERTs participated in or observed an exercise designed as a 2-hour long hands-on skills refresher opportunity .  Specifically, the training consisted of two simulated disaster situations:

1.       Extracting a victim trapped underneath a very heavy object.

2.       A partially collapsed single-family dwelling with an injured adult trapped inside.

Additional training in basic rapid victim transport (i.e., move out of immediate danger) was provided by Rod Potts (Corte Madera Fire Department), who also oversaw the activities.
