Lakeside CERT Training Starts Feb. 12th

There is still room available in the next Lakeside CERT academy which is scheduled to begin on Saturday, February 12th.
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact Lakeside and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.

CERT members work together to rescue a victim during a drill

Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help.
