We are sponsoring a free CERT (Community Emergency Response Training) class in Boonville on August 12, 19 & 26 at the Anderson Valley Fire Department. It is co-sponsored by the Office of Emergency Services for Mendocino County. It will run for three consecutive Saturdays from 8:30 – 5:30 pm.
The CERT training is an engaging way to learn disaster preparedness. It combines basic information with hands on activities and drills. You learn survival skills, rescuer safety, team work, fire safety and suppression, basic disaster medical operations and light search and rescue. It’s fire season – be ready!
Anyone interested in registering, or if they just want more information, they can call 462-1959. The classes are free. Mike Carter, our volunteer CERT Coordinator, will be teaching all three Saturdays.
