CERT Training is offered free of charge. Participants have no obligation or commitment to respond or act in the event of a disaster. The class curriculum for the training program consists of the following:

Unit 1 – DISASTER PREPAREDNESS – Introduction to disasters and the impact disasters have on infrastructures.  This course covers the role of CERT volunteers.

Unit 2 – DISASTER FIRE SUPPRESSION – Fire chemistry and basic fire suppression; identifying and reducing potential fire hazards; firefighting resources and techniques, as well as a discussion on hazardous materials.

Unit 3 – DISASTER MEDICAL OPERATIONS 1 – The principles of Triage and the treatment strategies for life-threatening conditions.

Unit 4 – DISASTER MEDICAL OPERATIONS 2 – Head-to-toe patient assessments, establishing treatment areas, treatments for burns, lacerations, raptures, sprains, and other injuries. This is basic information, NOT a first-Aid class.

Unit 5 – LIGHT SEARCH AND RESCUE OPERATIONS – Search and Rescue priorities and resources; size-up techniques and rescuer safety, lifting, cribbing, and victim removal.

Unit 6 – DISASTER PSYCHOLOGY AND TEAM ORGANIZATION – The post disaster emotional environment, the Incident Command System, and decision-making and documentation.

Unit 7 – TERRORISM – Risk and threat analysis, types of terrorism weapons, and travel and terrorism.

Unit 8 – COURSE REVIEW AND SIMULATION – A review of your newly learned skills and either a hands-on drill simulation, or a table top exercise.
