CERT Class

I do not know the cost for this class but it looks like a great class in which to participate. 

The Douglas County Emergency Management Agency and the Douglas County Fire/EMS Department will be offering a CERT class for citizens. The CERT program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact them, and trains them in basic disaster response skills such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help, or need help in assisting the public.
Classes will be held Monday nights at 6:00 p.m. May 4 - July 20th. Call 770.949.3007 to register or for more information.
