Thumbs up CERT training- via your fire department: Triage, first aid, was and more

Both a question and a cross post for an upcoming class....

Years back I took the CERT program from Redondo after being pestered by my assistant to take the program.

Great life saving skills taught to you by firefighter Paramedics.
The program is an amazing value... so many hours of training for a very low $$$ amount....

The C.E.R.T. concept is based on increasing disaster preparedness and awareness within the community by having a core group of trained individuals capable of assisting themselves, their family and their neighbors in the event of a catastrophic disaster.

Although Fire and Police emergency service personnel are the best trained and equipped to handle disasters, they will not be able to help everyone in post disaster response and recovery. You can make the difference by using the training you will receive to save lives and protect property. Are you ready?

A team of Redondo Beach firefighter instructors provide the training and will cover topics including disaster preparedness, CPR & First Aid, disaster medical operations, damage assessment, extinguisher use, light search and rescue, disaster psychology & team organization.

Upon successfully completing the training, you could be registered as a disaster service worker for the City of Redondo Beach. Registered volunteers are required to participate in future disaster preparedness training activities to maintain their volunteer status.

The fee is $40.00 per person for Redondo Beach residents, $100.00 per person for non-residents. The fee includes a designated C.E.R.T. hard hat, CPR & First Aid certification, photo identification card, training manual and graduation certificates.

If you are a cert grad- where did you take tour training and what do you think of the program???
