I am currently accepting applications for our next Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Course. The course will be Wednesday nights, 7:00-9:30 PM, April 1 – May 27 with the drill and graduation on June 6th. This course is open to all DeKalb County citizens and anyone who works within the county and is free of charge. Space is limited to the first 25 people who sign up. The course teaches citizens how to prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters. They will learn how to handle immediate needs of their families, co-workers, and neighbors after a disaster until professional rescuers can arrive. This course is best when taken with co-workers, family members, or neighbors who would respond together but can be taken alone.
