Community Emergency Response Training (Denver CERT)


Community Emergency Response Training (Denver CERT)

What would YOU do if a disaster hit close to home or work?

What:   This disaster preparedness and response training (FEMA Course G317) 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 their community.

Why:     When a disaster hits we can’t always depend on professional responders to be immediately available. We would like to have the 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:   December 7 and 8, 2011 8:00 a.m.- 5:30 p.m.
             Class exercise will be December 10, 2011, 8:30 a.m.- 3:30 p.m.
             All classes required for a certificate.

Where: Denver Human Service, 1200 Federal Boulevard,
             3rd Floor, Room 3109, Denver, CO

Cost:    The training will be provided at NO COST to participants.

Sponsored by: Office of Emergency Management and Homeland Security (OEM/HS); Denver Fire Department, Denver Human Services, North Center Region, Department of Homeland Security and the Organizational Management for Emergency General Activity (O.M.E.G.A.)
