FREE Training – Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

September 30, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

When disaster calls – how will you respond?

The City of Tukwila Fire Department and Office of Emergency Management are offering the FEMA-sponsored Community Emergency Response Team training at no charge starting September 30, 2017!

To register, call 206-971-8742, e-mail CERT@tukwilawa.gov, or fill out a Training Application Form.

 


Following a large scale emergency, professional responders may not be immediately available as they are tasked with multiple priorities. Through CERT training, individuals and organizations learn life-saving response skills to help each other until professionals arrive.

CERT includes 21 hours of training, plus a simulated disaster drill. Topics include the following:

  • Hazard Identification & Disaster Preparedness
  • Response Team Organization and Communication
  • Fire Safety and Suppression
  • Light Search and Rescue
  • Simple Triage and Rapid Treatment
  • Disaster Medical Operations
  • Terrorism Awareness
  • Disaster Psychology and Emotional Impacts
  • Comprehensive Final Drill

Classes run three Saturdays in a row, September 30th, October 7th, and October 14th, from 8am to 5pm each day, and will include a Final Drill on the last day. Lunch will be on your own. Participants must attend all classes and the drill in order to receive a certificate of completion.
