Original posting from our the CERT blog page:

Dear Friends,

Are you prepared to save yourselves, your families and your communities when disaster strikes? When fire, flood or shake/rattle/roll starts, you'll be glad you've trained in CERT (Community Emergency Response Team), a national FEMA course! 

The schedule for Fall 2012 Salt Lake City training is posted at; click on "Register for CERT Training." The opportunities include two locations close to residents of the Salt Lake City Southeast Division. 

  • On Tuesdays September 11 through October 23, a course will be presented at the LDS Richards Ward building at 860 Downington Avenue.
  • On Thursdays September 13 through October 25, a course will be presented at the LDS Monument Park 1st and 2nd Wards building at 1005 S 2000 E. 

Thirty dollars and seven weeks of classes from 6:30 - 9:30 p.m. gets you instruction, a manual, a great CERT starter kit and new friends in preparedness. 

If you want to attend but have a conflict for one or two of the nights of your selected course, you may coordinate with the instructors to make the unit(s) up. For instance, if you're signed up for the Thursday course but have to miss one, you could attend the Tuesday course on the appropriate day for that unit.

Please sign up soon; registration is required a week ahead of the start of the first class for each course. Get the word out to family, friends and neighbors as a minimum of twenty students is required to carry each course. These courses offer people previously trained in CERT to refresh and update their skills and, with $30 and attendance at all seven nights, an extra CERT kit for automobile or work!

Best regards,
