We're not looking for dummies – live or otherwise.
What we need are 5 or 6 more people to sign up for the CERT training course taking place in less than a month's time.
The 18-hour training is split over two consecutive Saturdays – October 1 and 8, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. – with the individual cost ($45) covered by the FHA (upon completion).
If we manage to hit the 25-person mark, the second day of training will take place at the Kappas Green and on one of the docks. The value of this to us is immeasurable. In addition to the usual skills and information – standard for any CERT training – we'll receive emergency response training tailored to our specific needs and life on the water. Those who have previously been through CERT training are encouraged to join the group on Day Two.
