The Grand Island-Hall County Emergency Management Department will sponsor a Basic Training Course for the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) at the Grand Island City Hall on Thursday evenings, beginning October 15 and ending November 19, 2015. The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, and disaster medical operations.
In a large-scale disaster, providing this kind of training for schools, work places, and community organizations in rural locations where professional emergency services may be overwhelmed and slow to reach remote, sparely populated areas, shows great foresight. Of course, providing Basic CERT Training to schools, work places, and community organizations in large towns and cities also has great benefit as well, especially when a large-scale disaster strikes.
