Are you ready for severe weather and emergencies?

newspaperThe Cities of Staunton and Waynesboro and Augusta County in partnership with Blue Ridge Community College will be offering Community Emergency Response Training (CERT).  The course will be held on Thursday evenings, September 18 – November 13, from 6:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. at the Plecker Center on the campus of Blue Ridge Community College.

This nine-week course uses a standard curriculum designed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and teaches basic skills in disaster preparedness, fire safety, first aid, terrorism awareness, disaster psychology, and search & rescue.  The CERT course is designed to give the average person tools to prepare themselves and their family during severe weather or other emergencies when emergency personnel are overwhelmed and may not be able to respond immediately.

The course is open to anyone who either lives or works in Staunton, Waynesboro, or Augusta County.  The course is free and all materials are provided. Registration is required.

To register, contact Blue Ridge Community College Continuing Education at 540-453-2215. Website: www.brcc.edu/continuinged.
