The 20 graduates will be joined by 3 trained members from other community CERT groups, to form a CERT Team in Raytown.

The CERT Program teaches volunteer citizens disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact the area in which they live. The training includes basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community. For more information about CERT, please visit http://www.ready.gov/citizen-corps.

The next CERT training may be hosted in the Fall of 2014. Contact Marilyn Fleming at 816-737-6018, or csu@raytownpolice.org for more information about the Raytown CERT Team or future CERT training.
