Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)
This program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.
Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.
Class is free to all students, there are no age requirements and you do not have to be a resident of the Boles Fire Protection District to attend.
Upcoming classes will be web-based with required online courses that will need to be completed over a 7 week time period.
