Have you ever thought, "What would I do if a tornado struck my subdivision or my hospital?" or "What types of natural disasters can happen in our area?" We have the answers...this workshop will present an overview of information that prepares you to help yourself, your family, coworkers and neighbors in the event of a crisis in your community. It is based on a program known nationally as Community Emergency Response Team Training (CERT). This workshop will cover one element of the training which is how to become more disaster preparedness oriented. Participants will take a look at how things change in the event of a disaster and how they can make a difference in a mass casualty incident.
Attendees that register by June 21st will receive a first aid kit bag, Official CAT tourniquet, SAM splint and other goodies.
