  • 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9.

The classes will be held at the Emergency Management Building at 215 Trinity Street in Weatherford. 

 Parker County Community Liaison for Emergency Preparedness Kit Marshall said that CERT is an all-hazard training designed to help residents help themselves, family, friends, and neighbors in an emergency situation.

“CERT volunteers are trained in basic disaster skills to respond effectively and efficiently without placing themselves in danger,” Marshall said. “The level of training equips CERT members to assist during a disaster until professional fire, police, and EMS arrive on scene which could be anywhere from a couple of minutes to hours, depending on the situation.”

  • Topics include
  • Unit 1 Emergency Preparedness
  • Unit 2 Fire Safety
  • Unit 3 Medical ops 1
  • Unit 4 Medical ops 2
  • Unit 5 Light Search and Rescue
  • Unit 6 CERT organization
  • Unit 7 Disaster Psychology
  • Unit 8 CERT and Terrorism
  • Unit 9 wrap up, test, and exercise
