EARLY 2023. CERT class
The NEMCo CERT Program provides periodic community training and information on local hazards and basic preparedness for events that include earthquakes, wind storms, snow events, floods, landslides and more. Classes are presented by first responders and trained CERT Community members in the areas of Fire Safety, Basic First Aid, Disaster Medical Operations, Light Search & Rescue, Utility Management and overall preparedness.
