Last CERT Basic Class of 2022

Minions With Bullhorn

Friends, we need your help!

Please post this to your social feeds and ask your friends and family
members if they are interested.

Our last CERT Basic class of 2022 is quickly approaching and seats are still available. The first class is starting September 9th. Please visit our website for details on the class including scheduling, topics covered, and the sign up link.

Keep in mind you do NOT need to join AAACERT after completing CERT Basic. But you WILL have piece of mind knowing the ‘what’ and ‘how’ you can help yourself, your family, and your neighbors in the event of an emergency.

An emergency isn’t always a global catastrophe. Sever weather like tornadoes, micro-burst storms, and blizzards along with “normal” injuries are all examples we can and do face in every day life. CERT Basic class will provide you the knowledge to help UNTIL HELP ARRIVES.

CERT Basic Class Simulation May 2022

 

Congratulations to the May 2022 CERT Basic class. Anne Arundel Annapolis CERT’s second class of 2022. The May 2022 class underwent its training and final disaster simulation exercise at the Anne Arundel County Fire Training Academy in Millersville, MD.  This group was challenged with under 10 participants which added extra stress to the search and rescue teams. Despite this challenge, they did an outstanding job. During the simulation, search teams had to perform basic search and rescue, provided triage to survivors, simulate fire suppression, and deploy cribbing to free a trapped survivor. Checkout our Facebook page for more photos of this and other events.

Congratulations to the October 2021 Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Basic training class.

Tick Tock…Tick Tock, Time is Counting Down

We have only 1 slot available for our upcoming EARLY SPRING CERT BASIC CLASS. Sign up now at the link below.

As for the LATE SPRING CERT BASIC CLASS, there are only a couple of slots open for that.

We do not expect these to remain open long, so click that link and sign up quickly.

Our CERT Basic classes in March and April are now open. Due to COVID-19 precautions, space is very limited so sign up quickly. The Basic CERT class is approximately 24 hours of instruction in basic disaster skills over 4 days.

CERT Basic Training is designed to prepare you to help yourself and to help others in the event of a catastrophic disaster. Because emergency services personnel will not be able to help everyone immediately, you can make a difference by using your CERT training to save lives and protect property. This training covers basic skills that are important to know in a disaster when emergency services are not available. With training and practice, and by working as a team, you will be able to protect yourself and do the greatest good for the greatest number after a disaster. Medical or EMT experience is not required.

For dates and times including a link to sign up, please visit the training page on our website at www.aaacert.org/cert-basic-training

PRE-REQUISITES:
Two, online, FEMA Emergency Management Institute courses must be successfully completed prior to the start of CERT Basic training. These courses are free (note:  you will be required to get a Student ID (SID) which also is free). The courses are listed as 3 hours each in duration but, on the average, students complete them in a little more than half that time. Details can be found at the link above.

We look forward to having you!

Be Prepared. Have a Plan.
