What would YOU do if a disaster hit close to home or work??
Class: June 3, 5 and 12, 2010 – Class Exercise: July 31, 2010
What: This disaster preparedness and response training (FEMA course IS317 – Community Emergency Response Team/Training) will include how to plan for a disaster and teach basic response skills such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. At the completion of this training, participants are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in our community.
Why: When a disaster hits, we can’t always depend on professional responders to be immediately available. We would like to have our citizens of Denver trained to help within their own communities.
Who: This training is open to anyone. We will accept up to 40 participants.
When: June 3, 2010, 6:00pm to 10:00pm; June 5 and 12, 8:00 AM - 5:30 PM. Class exercise will be July 31, 2010, 8:30am to 3:30pm
Where: Westwood Community Center, 1000 South Lowell Blvd, Denver CO 80219
Ok.... now... How much: The training will be provided at NO COST to participants.
Sponsored by: Office of Emergency Management and Homeland Security (OEM/HS); Denver Fire Department and Denver Police Department, the Organizational Management for Emergency General Activity (O.M.E.G.A.) and the Westwood Community Center
