Here's the o-fish-ul press release:



The City of Norman Office of Emergency Management through the Norman
Citizens CORPS will conduct free training for Citizens of Norman,
Oklahoma. The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program helps
train people to be better prepared to respond to emergency situations
in their communities. When emergencies happen, CERT members can give
critical support to first responders, provide immediate assistance to
victims, and organize spontaneous volunteers at a disaster site. CERT
members can also help with non-emergency projects that help improve
the safety of the community.

The CERT course is taught in the community by a trained team of first
responders who have completed a CERT Train-the-Trainer course. CERT
training includes disaster preparedness, disaster fire suppression,
basic disaster medical operations, and light search and rescue
operations. Completing the course allows citizens to take new skills
to their neighborhoods and increase their ability to be “Ready” during
a disaster. This course also qualifies citizens interested in
volunteering for emergency operations to apply for the Norman
Emergency Response Volunteer program.

The CERT training will be held at the Norman Fire Training Center,
2207 Goddard Ave, Norman, OK 73069 on March 28-30, 2013. Two more
classes are planned but dates are not yet determined. For further
information or to register for the program please contact David
Grizzle at 405-292-9780 or by email at [log in to unmask]
