CERT(Community Emergency Response Team)
If you are the type of person who wants to be part of the solution when disaster strikes then CERT is for you.
What is CERT you ask? Here is an explanation from the National CERT website.
"The Community Emergency Response Team 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, business groups, etc.) by teaching training classes and helping with disaster drills. To get involved with the Logan City CERT program contact the Logan City Emergency Manager at the Logan Fire Department to find out more.
