VACATION RENTAL REGISTRATION



COMMUNITY EMERGENCY RESPONSE TEAM

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training is a program designed to prepare Lincoln County residents to help themselves, their families and neighbors, in the event of a disaster.  The training covers basic skills that are important to know in a disaster when emergency services are not available.  The CERT program is free to all citizens of Lincoln County.

Over the course of  8 weeks, CERT members receive training in earthquake and Tsunami awareness, disaster fire suppression techniques, disaster medical operations, first aid/CPR, light search and rescue as well as team organization and management. CERT Training culminates with a disaster simulation and comprehensive course review.  All classes are taught by trained emergency personnel, including firefighters and emergency medical services personnel, with an emphasis on hands-on practice.

The CERT program provides an effective first-response capability.  Following a disaster, CERT teams can extinguish small fires, turn off gas inlets to damaged homes, perform light search and rescue and render basic first aid.
