County to offer free
CERT training classes

 

Submitted 

  Henry County Emergency Management Agency along with the Henry County Fire Department will be hosting two Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training classes starting in September at the Henry County Emergency Operations Center in McDonough.

  CERT is a positive and realistic approach to emergency and disaster situations where citizens will be initially on their own and their actions can make a difference. Through training, citizens can: manage utilities and put out small fires, provide basic medical aid, search for and rescue victims safely and organize themselves and spontaneous volunteers to be effective during an emergency.

  The CERT training is a free 20-hour course, open to participants age 18 and over, who live or work in Henry County and can pass a criminal history background check.

  Space is limited, and when registering, please indicate which class you would like to attend. There are two convenient options including a three full-day session as well as a once-a-week for seven weeks evening session.

  A 3-day class will be held September 23 - 25 from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. A Tuesday night class that will last 7 weeks will be held September 9 - October 21 from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m.

  If you are interested in one of the CERT classes or would like to become involved, visit www.co.henry.ga.us/911/CERT.shtml or contact Henry County Emergency Management Officer Shelita D. Broomfield at sbroomfield@co.henry.ga.us.

  An application for the program can be found at the above listed website. Please email completed application to sbroomfield@co.henry.ga.us, or mail to Henry County Emergency Operations Center, Attn: Shelita D. Broomfield, 526 Industrial Blvd., McDonough GA 30253.
