Free CERT Trainings Offered to Mendocino County Residents – The Ukiah Daily Journal

North Coast Opportunities partners with Mendocino County and the Office of Emergency Services to teach basic survival skills and disaster preparedness.

In 95% of all emergency situations, the victim or bystander provides the immediate first aid at the scene. Would you know what to do? In partnership with Mendocino County and the Office of Emergency Services, the North Coast Opportunities Volunteer Network is offering free Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) trainings on April 30 in Ukiah and April 21 May in Caspar.

This hands-on, one-day training will equip participants with the knowledge and skills to help themselves, friends and neighbors in the event of a disaster. CERT training is a fun and challenging way to learn disaster preparedness and survival skills, lifeguard safety, teamwork, fire safety and suppression, basic disaster medical operations and light search and rescue.
