The Layton Citizen Corps Council has scheduled three CERT courses to begin during the month of September.
The CERT course includes 24 hours of basic training in the areas of disaster awareness, CERT team organization, fire suppression, disaster first-aid, search and rescue, disaster psychology and terrorism awareness.
The course concludes with a simulated mock disaster where participants apply the skills learned in the course. The CERT course consists of approximately 21 hours of instruction and a three-hour mock disaster simulation.
Cost of the entire course is $25 and includes a comprehensive manual, CERT helmet, safety glasses, gloves and some basic first aid supplies.
