East Lincoln County CERT is getting ready to do another CERT training.
The East Lincoln County Community Emergency Response Team Coalition (CERT) is offering training for new members on Monday evenings from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. Training starts January 7th and continues for 9 weeks. There will also be a Saturday training event including hands-on training and a disaster simulation. All are welcome to attend. Classes will at Toledo Fire Department (285 NE Burgess Rd).
CERT members train and prepare to assist their own neighborhoods and communities following disasters such as storms and earthquakes. CERT training covers topics such as safety, basic first aid, light search and rescue, and use of fire extinguishers. CERT members work with other community organizations including the fire departments, police departments and the Sheriff’s Office in times of need.
CERT is a US Citizen Corps program under the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Each CERT operates independently in its own community. Lincoln County has five CERTs: East County (Toledo/ Siletz), North County, Depoe Bay, Central Coast, Seal Rock and South Coast. To sign up for training or join East County CERT, contact Fire Chief William Ewing at 541-336-3311 x 201 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
