CERT-G317: Basic Training Course

“Community Emergency Response Team”, CERT- G317, is a course that serves as an introduction to CERT for those wanting to complete training or as a refresher for current team members. If available, emergency services personnel are the best trained and equipped to handle emergencies. Following a catastrophic disaster, however, you and the community may be on your own for a period of time because of the size of the area affected, lost communications, and unpassable roads.

CERT Basic Training is designed to prepare you to help yourself and to help others in the event of a catastrophic disaster. Because emergency services personnel will not be able to help everyone immediately, you can make a difference by using your CERT training to save lives and protect property.

This training covers basic skills that are important to know in a disaster when emergency services are not available. With training and practice, and by working as a team, you will be able to protect yourself and do the greatest good for the greatest number of people.

Each graduate will receive a certificate. Lunch and snacks on the last day are provided by Gulfport CERT. Class is set to be held at Scout Hall, 5315 28th Ave. S. Class is limited to 25 Gulfport residents and registration is required.

Volunteer Coordinator, Jim Wright
