Renton to offer CERT training in April and May
The City of Renton is offering CERT training in April and May to individuals to help them respond to a disaster at home and in their neighborhoods.
CERT stands for Community Emergency Response Team. The training prepares individuals to provide an initial response to a disaster before emergency crews arrive.
They’ll learn how to extinguish small fires, conduct light search and rescue, triage, how to organize neighborhoods following a disaster and more.
The “hands on” training is 6-9 p.m. on Tuesdays, April 15-May 27, at Renton Fire Station 14 on Lind Avenue Southwest, with a final drill and graduation on Saturday, May 31.
More information and registration is available online at http://www.rentonwa.gov/cert.
Cost is $25 for Renton residents and $30 for non-residents. The minimum age to participate is 18 years old.
