Free Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Training Offered to public

Classes begin September 4, 2019

The Douglas County Office of Emergency Management is proud to present this training to the public.

Following a disaster, community members may be on their own for a period of time because of the size of the area affected, lost communications, and impassable roads.  The Douglas County Citizen Preparedness Training utilizes the national CERT program curriculum and supports local response capability by training community volunteers about the hazards they face and ways to prepare for them.  The Douglas County Citizen Preparedness Training was developed to teach the basic organization skills to help you help yourself, your loved ones and your neighbors during an emergency event.  Due to the popularity of this annual class, we ask that you firmly commit to each and every one of the class dates and times (please see below for complete listing).
