If you are the type of person wants to be part of the solution when disaster strikes then CERT is for you.
"The Community Emergency Response Team ( CERT ) 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."
The Logan Fire department is honored to participate with CERT groups (neighborhoods, church groups, etc.) by teaching some of the training classes and helping with disaster drills. These are very fun classes with neighbors coming together and preparing to handle disasters together.
