Denver Community Emergency Response Training

09/24/2013 - 8:00am - 5:00pm

(Denver CERT)

What would YOU do if an emergency/disaster hit close to home or work??

What: This emergency/disaster preparedness and response training (FEMA course IS317) will include how to plan for an emergency, and teach basic response skills such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and emergency/disaster medical operations.  At the completion of this training, participants are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in our community.

Why:  When an emergency/disaster hits, we can’t always depend on professional responders to be immediately available.  We would like to have our communities of Denver trained to help within their own communities. 

Who: This training is open to anyone. We will accept up to 40 participants. 

When: Class will be held:

  • September 24, 2013, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm and
  • October 1, 2013, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM.
  • Class exercise will be October 20, 2013, 1:00pm to 6:00pm. Location: The Pepsi Center
  • You must attend both class sessions and the exercise in order to complete the course.

Where: Class will be held at the Webb Building 201 West Colfax Avenue, Room #4I4

             Denver, Colorado 80202

 

How much: The training is provided at NO COST to participants.
