What is CERT?
Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their community and trains them in basic disaster response skills. These skills include areas such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Following an event when professional responders are not immediately available, those who have completed CERT training are better equipped to assist others in their neighborhood or workplace.
Greenville County CERT offers training courses open to the community at least twice a year (Spring & Fall). If you have a group of at least 10 people who would like to take the training together, we can often schedule a class specifically for your group.
Participants gain hands-on experience in the following sessions:
To accommodate as many people as possible, we will offer two training options for our 2013 Spring CERT classes. The first option will meet on Mondays at the Red Cross (940 Grove Rd) from 6:00pm-8:30pm, March 11 - April 29. The second option will meet on April 13, 20, & 27 (Saturdays) at the Civil Air Patrol building (11 Airport Rd Ext) from 8:30am-5:00pm, and then join the other class for the final exercise on Monday, April 29, from 6:00pm-8:30pm.
