If you want to be able to help in times of crisis, then Community Emergency Response Team training is for you! Your Marysville Emergency Management team provides the training and you get the skills.

Registration is now open for free CERT classes offered by the City of Marysville and Marysville Fire District. Classes take place on eight consecutive Tuesday evenings, Sept. 10 through Oct. 29 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at Fire Station #62, 10701 Shoultes Rd.

“Our recent earthquake was a great reminder that we need to be prepared,” said Jenn Brown, the city’s Emergency Preparedness Coordinator. “Come join the growing team of community members who are trained to respond when the next disaster happens.”

CERT provides education and training in basic response skills including fire safety, search and rescue, and medical operations. Participants must live or work in Marysville, attend all sessions, establish a three-day emergency kit, obtain personal safety equipment and be a willing team participant. Personal safety equipment costs about $30; more information about what to get and where to buy it is provided at the first class.

Classes fill up quickly, so apply soon. The online application and more information are available at http://www.marysvillewa.gov/758/CERT. If you have questions, please email Brown at jbrown@marysvillewa.gov.
