Reminder: Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Basic Course starts in April, register now!

Miramar FD wants to remind you that registration is now open for the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Basic Course.

Following a major disaster, first responders who provide fire and medical services will not be able to meet the demand for services. Factors such as the number of victims, communication failures, and road blockages will prevent people from accessing emergency services they have come to expect at a moment's notice through 911. People will have to rely on each other for help in order to meet their immediate life-saving and life sustaining needs. CERT training will provide the necessary skills in the aftermath of a disaster.

The classes offered are:

Disaster Preparedness - April 08, 2014

Terrorism Awareness - April 15, 2014

Disaster Psychology - April 17, 2014

Disaster Medical Operations I - April 18, 2014

Basic Fire Safety Techniques - April 21, 2014

Light Search & Rescue Techniques - April 24, 2014

Disaster Medical Operations II - April 25, 2014

Review & Graduation - April 30, 2014

All courses will take place at Miramar Fire-Rescue Station 84 located at 14801 S.W. 27 Street, Miramar, FL 33027 (Training room 1st floor – drive through the gates and park in the rear of the station).

Classes will begin at 7 pm and end at 9:30 pm. Please be on time.

City of Miramar residents will be given preference with class reservation space limit. At the end of the course completion each participant will receive a CERT backpack with course preparedness content and a Certificate.

Call 954-602-4883 or email mhidalgo@miramarfd.org to reserve your place in the class!
