Watching all the weather challenges being
faced by the East Coast this winter should make us all wonder if we would be
prepared to handle something similar. What can you do about it? Prepare by
making a kit, making a plan, staying informed.
To help in your preparation, the Carnation-Duvall Citizen Corps
is offering Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) classes in Carnation on
Monday nights from March 3-April 28th, 6:30-9:00 p.m.
Learn how to put out small fires, do light search and rescue,
and perform basic medical triage along with
learning many other preparedness skills. A donation of $35 is asked for the 20
hours of training which includes a backpack and starting supplies. Registration
information can be obtained at www.carnationduvallcitizencorps.org.
Training is open to residents and local employees 18 years of age and up; those
16-17 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Go to the Carnation-Duvall Citizen Corps website
for a registration form or call 425-788-8260 or email cert@...
if you are interested in being a CERT volunteer. See you in class!
