CERT 36 Class to Begin in Reston on February 2, 2009

The Community Emergency Response Team (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 classroom training, CERT 36 members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help.

It's all about saving lives in a disaster situation: yours, your family, and your neighbors.
