CERT is about readiness, people helping people, rescuer safety, and doing the greatest good for the greatest number. CERT is a positive and realistic approach to emergency and disaster situations where citizens will be initially on their own and their actions can make a difference.
Through training, citizens can manage utilities and put out small fires; treat the three killers by opening airways, controlling bleeding, and treating for shock; provide basic medical aid; search for and rescue victims safely; and organize themselves and spontaneous volunteers to be effective.
Lamorinda CERT will be offering a free class series at the Lafayette Community Center on Tuesdays starting January 13, 2015. Series runs 7 weeks, 6:30 - 9:30 PM starting January 13, 2015, and graduating February 24, 2015.
