Prairie State CERT Challenge
The 2012 Prairie State Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Challenge will be held on Saturday, September 29, 2012 at the Northeastern Illinois Public Safety Training Academy (NIPSTA) in Glenview. The CERT Program educates people 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 the training learned in the classroom and and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help.
PSCC is a great way to help prepare your community for a disaster.
