Sanibel volunteers sought for CERT training

By Staff | Sep 21, 2010

The Sanibel CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) is looking for volunteers to participate in upcoming training. The training will consist of eight aspects of response to emergencies such as hurricanes, tornados and others.

The Sanibel CERT members are members of the community that are willing to help others in a time of need, when our police officers and firefighters are busy with other aspects of a disaster. CERT members learn first aid, preparedness and overall safety.

The course will take place over eight weeks, meeting once a week for approximately two hours per week. The course takes place at Sanibel Fire Station #1 on Palm Ridge Road, Wednesday evenings from 6 to 9 p.m. The course starts on Sept. 29 and runs through Nov. 17.

Please contact Assistant Chief Matt Scott at 472-5525 or mscott@sanibelfire.com if you would like to participate in this training opportunity.
