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).
Participants gain hands-on experience in the following sessions:
Our 2015 Fall CERT training will be on Tuesday evenings, 6:15-8:45pm
Final Exercise on Saturday, November 14, 8:30am-12:30pm
