Artesia is hosting a Community Emergency Response Team training series in February. It is three 8-hour classes that are taught by the L.A. County Fire Department. The classes are FREE!
The topics will include disaster preparedness, fire suppression, medical operations, search and rescue, disaster psychology and organization, and terrorism. After these topics, simulations will put each person in a hypothetical scenario where the CERT training is applied.
During each session participants are required to wear closed-toed shoes and long pants for safety purposes. The course will be held on three consecutive Saturdays. Participants MUSTS attend all three sessions to receive their CERT certification.
The dates for the February 2014 CERT training are February 1st, 8th, and 15th. Classes are from 8:45 AM to 4:30 PM, at Artesia Park's Community Center, in Room A. Latecomers will not be admitted.
