Quincy Emergency Management to Hold Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Course

Quincy Emergency Management in collaboration with the Quincy Police Department and Brewster Ambulance will hold a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training course from March 11- April 29, 2020.

The course will meet for eight consecutive weekly sessions on Wednesday evenings from 6:00-8:30PM where participants will receive training in disaster preparedness, basic sheltering, light search and rescue, medical operations, and fire safety. CERT training offers an approach to volunteer training and organization that provides members with the knowledge to assist public safety professionals during disaster situations. Through CERT training, citizens can enhance their overall capabilities to prepare for and assist others in their community when disasters strike. Course registration is ongoing and Quincy residents will have priority.
