(If you already have a solid 72-hour kit -- or think you do -- this CERT continuing education class will also go beyond 72 hours and look at long-term food and water storage.)
On Tuesday, July 9, 7-10pm at the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Academy, CERT volunteer Judy Howell will lead a class on how to assemble a 72-hour emergency kit with vital supplies that can sustain your family for 3 days after a disaster.
The course is open to all, with no prerequisites. To register for this free class:
Current CERT volunteers: Log in to FairfaxCERT.com; from the menu bar, select Training > Training Calendar and click the class listing for July 9th.
Don't have a FairfaxCERT.com account? You'll need to register for one, free. Once your account is set up, follow the instructions above to sign up for the class.
