Jan. 24, 2017 - Hampton's Emergency Management Office has a new CERT class starting Feb. 23. Sign up now for four weeks of training on everything from disaster preparedness to light search and rescue. 

Classes will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 p.m. until about 9 p.m., with a final practical March 18.

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training educates individuals about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT volunteers can assist others in their community following a disaster when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT volunteers are also encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking an active role in emergency preparedness projects.

Get a certificate of completion when classes are over. Email or call 757.727.1208 to register and learn more.
