Disaster Preparedness Training

Our three-day Disaster Preparedness Training Course is free and provides individuals with comprehensive training in disaster preparedness and response. Through classroom learning and hands-on training you will learn how to help yourself, your family, and your neighbors during and immediately following a disaster, and in the process save lives that may otherwise be lost. 

Disasters can strike at any time and being prepared for these and other unexpected events is critical to saving lives. Each one of us has a responsibility to understand the risk natural and man-made disasters pose to our communities, and to recognize we each have a role in preparing for these events.  We have a duty to build a Culture of Preparedness in which our neighbors, families and friends are ready for any disaster event, and to make our communities safer, stronger, and better prepared.

After the training, you may be eligible to join Lincoln Park’s CERT team.  The requirements to become a member of Lincoln Park CERT are:

  • You are at least 18 years of age.
  • You have completed a CERT Basic Training course.
