The Elmore County Emergency Management Agency is hosting a “CERT Interest Meeting” to determine the number of Elmore County citizens interested in participating in a CERT training course. CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) is a FEMA program that educates volunteers about disaster preparedness related to hazards that may impact our area. The course trains individuals in basic disaster response skills such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. This course will be taught over a nine week period (one night per week) with the course instructors composed of emergency management staff and first responders. We invite all citizens who are interested in learning more about this course to come to the Wetumpka Civic Center, 410 S Main St., Wetumpka, AL 36092, on Monday, April 29, 2019 at 6:00 PM.
