Sanibel CERT looking for volunteers

By Staff | Aug 8, 2013

The Sanibel CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) is looking for volunteers to participate in upcoming training.

The training consists of eight aspects of response to emergencies such as hurricanes, tornados, and others. The Sanibel CERT members are members of the community 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 takes place over eight weeks, meeting once a week for approximately two hours a week. The course is given at Sanibel Fire Station One on Palm Ridge Road 6-9 p.m.on Tuesday evenings.

The course starts Sept. 10 and runs through Nov. 5. For information contact assistant chief Matt Scott at 472-5525 or mscott@sanibelfire.com to participate in this training opportunity.
