Emergency Response Training Begins in Felton

San Lorenzo Valley Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training begins Wednesday night (4/7) in Felton at the Fire Station.  Felton Fire Protection District.  Veteran Felton Fire Captain, Ray Soler provides the training which includes, lecture, discussion, multi-media and hands on training.

 CERT is about readiness, people helping people, rescuer safety, and the CERT mantra: Do the greatest good for the greatest number. CERT is a positive and realistic approach to emergency situations where citizens initially will be on their own and their actions can make a difference. Citizens can be trained to manage utilities and put out small fires; treat the three killers by opening airways, controlling bleeding, and treating for shock; provide basic medical aid; search for and rescue victims safely; and organize themselves and spontaneous volunteers to be effective.
