Emergency response training classes set in Newark
Submitted By Cmdr. Mike Carroll, Newark PD
When an emergency arises that affects an entire neighborhood or community, citizens who are well-prepared can often make a positive difference in the outcome.
With that idea in mind, the City of Newark and its Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) are offering a free springtime emergency training class for community members starting Tuesday, April 11.
With assistance from the Alameda County Fire Department, CERT training will address specific hazards unique to the Newark area. CERT classes promote readiness, people helping people, rescuer safety. Citizens are trained in topics such as basic fire suppression, utility control, search and rescue, basic medical aid, triage, treating for shock, and disaster incident management.
The class will meet from 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays, April 11 through May 9 at the Silliman Center, 6800 Mowry Ave., Newark. A final drill will take place from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 13 at Kaiser Permanente Medical Offices, 3555 Whipple Road Union City.
Registrations can be made online by visiting www.eventbrite.com and searching for Newark Cert Training.
