The CERT program educates participants about disaster preparedness and trains them in basic disaster response skills such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. This training will enable CERT members to assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members will also be encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.
The CERT program consists of eight classes, mostly held at Roswell Fire Station 7 at 8025 Holcomb Bridge Road. Classes will take place on Thursdays from 7:00-10:00pm, beginning September 5. The program is open to Roswell residents only.
