CERT Program Manager’s Moment- January, 2018

Welcome to 2018! Montgomery County CERT has a lot going on as we begin this new year. January 10th marks the first session of our new CERT Basic class (#2018-01).  We will offer CERT Basic twice more before the summer, so keep an eye on this website for sign up information. I was very proud to spend several hours this weekend with our excellent CERT Instructor Corps working on tweaks and improvements to our lesson plans for 2018. It’s a safe bet that CERT students will get an excellent introduction to emergency skills and preparation this year.

I’m also excited about the incredible line up of monthly guest speakers we are booking in 2018. We begin with a training on “Narcan” for our January General Meeting ( 1-11-18 @ 1900 PSHQ) and next month will be a workshop on “Stop The Bleed”. More details of monthly and extra training will be announced here as the speakers are confirmed.

We will be announcing more Friends and Family CPR/AED classes soon also here on our website.

And 2018 will also see Montgomery CERT host CERTCon once again. Stay tuned for more!

Be safe, stay warm, and lets make 2018 a great year for Montgomery County CERT!
