Apply Now for CERT Training

Posted Friday, March 02, 2018

Applications are now being accepted for the Skagit County Basic Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Training.

Training classes run April 12 through May 31 at the Sedro-Woolley Fire Station (325 Metcalf Street).

The CERT program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as; Fire Safety, Light Search and Rescue, Team Organization and Disaster Medical Operations.

Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help.

CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.

For questions, please contact Phill Zimmerman at (360) 333.7625 or  Phillz@SkagitCERT.org
