CERT: Train for local disasters at Snoqualmie fire station

The cities of Snoqualmie and North Bend, along with Eastside Fire & Rescue, are jointly offering the FEMA-certified Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) course, which begins October 15 at the Snoqualmie Fire Station.

By becoming certified team members, participants will be better prepared to help their families, neighbors, and community during emergencies and disasters. CERT members can also give critical support to first responders and provide immediate assistance to victims.

The fee for the four-day course is $25 per person and is fully refundable upon completion of all classes. The class includes equipment, a student manual, and CERT kit (Field Operation Guide, hardhat, safety vest, backpack, goggles, gloves, flashlight, whistle, triage tape, and hand-sanitizing gel). To register for the CERT program, e-mail to eoc@ci.snoqualmie.wa.us  and include your name, address, and phone number, or call 425-888-1551.
