Two New CERT Refreshers are Scheduled.

Via Email from Derek...

This Wednesday evening August 15th at the Fire Academy will be two Standard Evolution drills. To operate with as much daylight as possible and to improve learning, we would like to start this refresher at 6:30pm. This will also allow us to get out earlier!

These drills will include a quick review of techniques and then a simple scenario. If you know anyone who is interested in CERT this would be a great refresher to bring them along. Maybe they can even act as victims! (Of course, having some victims would be great so feel free to bring some!)

The next refresher will be on Wednesday August 22nd at 7:00pm and will be on the use of rope and webbing for a variety of techniques.

These will include tag lines, mechanical advantages, utility rope use, and the use of webbing. We’ll also introduce the very effective “550 Cord” to your CERT toolbox. (550 cord is military parachute cord that is almost as useful as duct tape.)

Please bring all of your gear, long pants, and closed toe shoes.

Remember this Wednesday’s refresher is at 6:30pm!

No need to sign up, just show up.

Derek
