Denver Community Emergency Response Training (Denver CERT)
WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF AN EMERGENCY/DISASTER HIT CLOSE TO HOME OR WORK??
What: This emergency/disaster preparedness and response training (FEMA course IS317) will include how to plan for an emergency, and teach basic response skills such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and emergency/disaster medical operations. At the completion of this training, participants are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in our community.
Why: When an emergency/disaster hits, we can’t always depend on professional responders to be immediately available. We would like to have our communities of Denver trained to help within their own communities.

• January 9, 2014, 6:00pm to 9:00pm;
