Next CERT Training Class

Many have inquired, so we are happy to announce that we have firm dates.  The next CERT Training class will be held on October 3-5, and 10-12

Classes will take place at the Holley Navarre Main Fire Station, 8618 Esplanade St.  Further information will be provided before the class starts to those who are preregistered. Adults, and teens 14 years and older, are encouraged to take advantage of this free training that will certify participants as CERT members and allow them to join current teams or form new teams in their own community. CERT is an official emergency preparedness program of the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Participants are required to attend all six classes to successfully complete the course.  Prior to the start of training, participants must take the FEMA Independent Study course IS-317: Introduction to Community Emergency Response Teams.  This can be done online (free of charge) at www.citizencorps.gov/cert/training_mat.shtm.  For further details and to register for this next CERT Training class, fill out the application form by clicking on the Training link above, then the "Next Training Class" link.
