Disasters can severely restrict and overwhelm emergency response resources and leave communities cut off from outside emergency support. The Forsyth County Citizen Corps Council is offering the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Basic Training Course. CERTs are trained to take care of themselves and help others in their communities for the first three days following a disaster. Upon successful completion, students are eligible to join a local community team. However, you’re not required to join a team in order to register for the course. The course will be limited to the first 25 qualified registrants. Participants must be at least 18 years old and reside in Forsyth County to join.
April 17 through May 15, 2012
Tuesdays & Thursdays only
Location: Forsyth County Agricultural Building, Aud. B – Fairchild Road, Winston-Salem
See the 2012 Spring CERT Basic Training Flyer for details and to register.
