Anne Arundel – Annapolis CERT is pleased to host “Search and Rescue in Community Disasters” presented by Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX).

The Search and Rescue in Community Disasters course provides training for community members to safely conduct search and light rescue response to aid their family and neighbors in the immediate aftermath
of a natural catastrophe, technological accident, or human-caused incident. The course is intended for members of the whole community and draws on information and lessons learned from a variety of disaster incidents such as hurricanes, tornadoes, and man-made events for discussion points.

– Developing a mindset to prepare, act and survive in a disaster involving your community
– Using survival strategies to rescue and care for yourself, your family, and your pets during and in the immediate aftermath of an event
