CERT Training Participants Now Certified to Assist
June 18, 2018
Last week, Alabama Association of REALTORS® partnered with the Montgomery City/County Emergency Management Agency to host Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Basic Training. Nearly 50 Alabama REALTORS® members from across the state participated and were certified at the conclusion of the two-day course.
The CERT Training course included lessons in disaster preparedness, fire safety and utility controls, disaster medical operations, light search and rescue operations, disaster psychology and team organization, terrorism, and the Alabama REALTORS® Disaster Relief Fund. The final exercise was a simulated tornado scenario in which participants had to apply the material they learned in training to triage the situation.
Due to the high demand and success of the course, more will be scheduled periodically. Stay tuned for dates for the next Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Basic Training. To learn more about the course, click here.
