DHS Announces Next Round of CERT Training Classes

The Division of Homeland Security (DHS) announced today upcoming classes available for Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training, expressing that “if disaster strikes, neighbors will have to help neighbors,” and support emergency response agencies. The program, presented by the DHS, is designed to provide basic training in disaster preparedness for residents, which increases the ability of citizens to manage an extreme situation until first responders or other assistance arrives. A basic understanding of fire safety, first aid, damage assessment, and triage will be provided. Their first program course begins February 4th at 6pm inside the DHS headquarters at 201 North Shadeland Avenue in Indianapolis. There is an additional opportunity for the CERT course beginning March 4th at 6pm at Southport High School in Indianapolis. For more information regarding these courses, please see the DHS website link attached to this story on WREBfm.com.
