Community Emergency Response Team Winter Training Announced:

A Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training program is available to Eastern Shore residents beginning Tuesday, February 1, 2018. The CERT training program prepares citizens and communities to take a more active role in emergency preparedness. CERT participants are trained and maintained as part of a neighborhood or workplace response team. CERT training can give you the basic skills needed immediately following a major disaster, when emergency services may not be available and when residents may have to rely on each other for life-saving and life-sustaining needs.
Citizens will learn how to provide help for their family and neighbors in emergency situations -- whether caused by terrorism, technological disasters or severe weather. Participants will learn about disaster preparedness and response, basic fire safety, first aid, search and rescue techniques, and terrorism preparedness.  Students will have chances to win door prizes and at the conclusion of the class, all students will receive a backpack filled with emergency supplies.
The 20.5 hour program consists of both lecture and practical exercises.  The class will be held on Thursday evenings February 1st, February 8th, February 15th, Tuesday, February 27th from 6 PM until 10 PM and on Thursday, March 1st from 5:30 PM until 10 PM.  Participants must attend all sessions to receive credit. All classes will be held at the Eastern Shore Regional Fire Training Center, 28598 Beacon Road in Melfa, Virginia.
Class size is limited to 30 people.  Minimum class size is 10 people.  If fewer than 10 people are registered, the class may be cancelled.  This course is free of charge. Register by emailing J.J. Justis at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call (757) 302-4267.
The CERT program is funded through a grant administered by the Virginia Department of Emergency Management.
