From April 1-3, the Anne Arundel – Annapolis CERT trained Police Explorers at the Fire Training Academy.13 students were taught lessons such as disaster preparedness, medical operations, basic search and rescue, and light fire suppression. Several exercises were conducted including basic triaging and victim carries.
This was all in preparation for the final disaster simulation which will take place on Saturday, May 21st. The simulation will be an authentic exercise to test the Explorers’ skills as well as other community members who take the May Basic Training Class.

The Anne Arundel – Annapolis CERT will be training the Police Explorers April 1-9 at the Fire Training Academy. The Anne Arundel County Police Explorer Program was created to introduce high school-aged youths to the various careers in law enforcement. Police Explorers are uniformed, non-paid members of the department which meet once a week. During the meetings, Explorers learn good moral character, responsibility and team work. They also receive police associated training which shows them what is like to be a recruit officer in training.
CERT is looking for volunteers to serve as “victims” for the disaster simulation exercise from 0900-1200 on Saturday, April 9th. For more details, please contact email@example.com
