Parker County’s Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is an all-hazard training team that is looking for interested residents to join the program designed to help protect families, friends and neighbors and our county in an emergency situation.
The fall 2014 CERT 317 class well be held on Monday evenings from 6:30-9:30 on Nov. 3, 10 and 17, as well as on Saturdays from 9AM-3PM on Nov. 8 and 15. CERT volunteers are trained in basic disaster skills to respond effectively and efficiently without placing themselves in danger. The level of training equips CERT members to function as a first responder during a disaster until professional fire, police and EMS arrive on scene which could be a couple of minutes or hours.
This is an approximate 21 hour, free class, and will be held at our Emergency Management facility at 215 Trinity ST, Weatherford. If interested in attending training please RSVP to KIT MARSHALL 817-598-0969 or kit.marshall. For those who may not want to commit to the team, they are welcome to take the training without actually joining the CERT Team.
