All CERT members attend a basic training class which is held in Paramus, New Jersey. Instruction is received in the following areas:
- Disaster Medical Operations
- Disaster Preparedness
- Disaster Psychology
- Fire Suppression
- Light Search and Rescue
- Terrorism Awareness
There are a total of 8 classes which are held during the evening. At the completion of the program, basic CERT safety equipment will be issued to each successful participant. CERT members receive additional training each year in the Township such as CPR, traffic/accident safety, mass casualty management, and sheltering operations.
CERT training is a great way to feel more empowered to protect yourself, your family and potentially your community.
