FREE Disaster Preparedness Training

20-Hour Basic Community Emergency Response Team Class

 

The Village of Alsip will be hosting a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) 20-Hour

Basic Course starting on Wednesday, September 7, 2022. The course is FREE and will be held on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the Alsip Village Hall and other nearby locations.

The CERT Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety and extinguishment, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations including first aid, bandaging, splinting and bleeding.  CERT members also are encouraged to support the community by providing assistance with non-emergency events and emergency preparedness related projects.  No experience is needed. We will provide you with the training necessary to become a volunteer Alsip CERT member.

Those interested in registering for the CERT Course should contact Charles Geraci, Department of Emergency Preparedness Director, Village of Alsip, (708) 385-6902 ext. 2244 or cgeraci@villageofalsip.org. Class size is limited to 30 and registration closes on August 22, 2022.
