FREE Training – Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

April 27, 2017

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 April 27, 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 each Thursday, 6:00pm to 9:00pm for seven weeks, beginning April 27th. The Final drill and graduation are held on Saturday, June 10, from 8:00am to 12:00pm. Participants must attend all classes and the drill in order to receive a certificate of completion.
