FREE Disaster Preparedness Training - Village of New Lenox

FREE Disaster Preparedness Training
20-Hour Basic Community Emergency Response Team Class
 
The Village of New Lenox will be hosting a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) 20-Hour Basic Course starting on Wednesday September 11, 2019.  The Course is FREE and will be held on Wednesday evenings from 6:30pm to 8:30pm at the New Lenox Village Hall.  The Final Exercise and Graduation will be held on Saturday October 26, 2019 from 9:00am to 1:00pm.
 
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, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.  Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help.  CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.
