  CERT training Nov. 18-19

In the event of a natural disaster, it could take several days for public safety personnel to respond to individual homes, making it important to learn emergency basics so you can be as self-sufficient as possible. The West Jordan Fire Department is teaching a two-day Community Emergency Response Team training on Nov. 18-19. This CERT course is for those residents and people who work or own businesses in West Jordan who would like to be trained on what to do in case of natural disaster or other emergency.

The course requires completion of an online course prior to taking the hands on class. The hands-on portion is taught by West Jordan firefighters and other local professionals. You will learn about disaster preparedness, disaster medical, fire suppression, and search and rescue. The online self-study portion usually takes about six hours to complete. The 12-hour classroom practical session will be held Friday, Nov. 18 from 6 p.m.-10 p.m., and Saturday, Nov. 19 from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. You must complete both portions and the required training hours in order to receive certification.

CERT training is open to all West Jordan Residents, age 18 and over, and anyone who works within West Jordan City limits. The cost of the class is $35, to cover some of the cost of materials. Class size is limited to 24 students and is selected on a first-come, first-served basis. If the minimum number of 12 students is not met, the class will be postponed until spring.

To register for the class, email certwjfd@wjordan.com and an application and information will be sent to you. There is a $35 non-refundable deposit to help cover the costs. Questions? Email certwjfd@wjordan.com or call 801-260-7300.
