Training for Community Residents
- Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) – CERT is a 20-hour, nationally recognized course, where you can learn how to take life-saving action to help businesses and families get through the first few hours or days of an emergency. CERT prepares individuals to help prior to, during and after a large scale disaster.
- CPR – Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation classes are offered locally through the American Red Cross and American Heart Association.
- FEMA Independent Study Program – This is a great program that offers free online classes you can take anytime.
