I wanted to inform you all of the upcoming CERT Training program that starts September 11th in the EOC.  This is an 8-week (24-hour), self-sufficiency and disaster responder training program that will introduce you to the basic skills necessary to help yourself, your family, and your neighbors when another IKE or other disaster event strikes this area.

 

This national standard training curriculum is recognized throughout the entire country and is taught by local subject matter experts.  It is a dynamic training program that has received very high approval ratings from the participants and will teach you the basic skills necessary to give your family the best chances for survival and comfort after a disaster event.

 

CERT CURRICULUM

 

  • Disaster Preparedness Planning
  • Fire Safety & Suppression
  • Emergency Medical Triage Procedure
  • Emergency Medical Operations
  • Search & Rescue Techniques
  • Incident Command & Organization
  • Terrorism Awareness
  • Comprehensive Disaster Drill

 

The course Introduction and registration is scheduled for September 11th at 6:30pm in the EOC.  The course will then run from 6:30pm – 9:30 pm every Tuesday night through the evening of November 6th when it ends with a Comprehensive Disaster Drill.

The class fills up fast and registration is on a first-come-first-serve basis.  Quite a few Baytown City Employees have already completed the program and can attest to its value.  This is a free course that simply requires the contribution of your time for the duration of the class.
