G-317 Basic Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Training-April 2018







CERT Basic Training is designed to prepare you to help yourself and to help others in the event of a catastrophic disaster. Because emergency services personnel will not be able to help everyone immediately, you can make a difference by using your CERT training to save lives and protect property.

This training covers basic skills that are important to know in a disaster when emergency services are not available. With training and practice, and by working as a team, you will be able to protect yourself and do the greatest good for the greatest number after a disaster.

The target audience for this course are individuals who desire the skills and knowledge required to prepare for and respond to a disaster.

Individual Topics Covered:
–Disaster Preparedness
–Fire Safety and Utility Controls
–Disaster Medical Operations
–Light Search and Rescue Operations
–The CERT Organization
–Disaster Psychology
–Terrorism and CERT

We will not be having a March ARES meeting.

But there is a hamfest in Zephyrhills that day. So please feel free to come on down and see us at the hamfest. We will have a table setup for Pasco County ARES.


ARES February Meeting

ARES February Meeting – Eastside EOC

The February meeting for ARES will be held at the Eastside EOC on Saturday Feb 3rd @ 1100 hrs.  The EOC East / IT Center or whatever you want to call it is the new building on McDonald St.  There is an elevator on the loading dock on the West side of the building.  I will have someone there to let everyone in.  I have a card key to the building but no other way to unlock it.

We will be working on Net Control Schedules for the year and hopefully some other items. Hope to see everyone there.
