Lincoln Park Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is accepting applications for an upcoming Basic Training Course to be held this fall. The purpose of this Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Course is to provide citizens with the basic skills needed during a major disaster. This training will allow graduates to respond to the immediate need of their community in the aftermath of a major disaster – the time when emergency services may not be immediately available. By working together, CERT members can assist in saving lives and protecting property by implementing the basic techniques taught in this course.
The CERT Basic training evolves search and rescue, first aid, CPR, AED, triage, and disaster psychology. What better way to give back to your community, just by giving up a few hours to serve in such a great organization as a CERT member.
In order for members to maintain and refine their skills Lincoln Park CERT holds monthly meetings / continued education series throughout the state. In addition, CERT members participate in various emergency preparedness activities.
Persons interested in signing up for CERT basic training may download an application and return it to the Lincoln Park Fire Department located at:
Lincoln Park Fire Department
Lincoln Park, MI 48146
Each participant will receive a training manual, CERT kit and certificate upon completion of the course.
