Henry County Emergency Management Agency along with the Henry County Fire Department will be hosting 2 (two) Community Emergency Response Team training classes starting in September at the Henry County Emergency Operations Center located at: 526 Industrial Blvd McDonough, GA 30253 .

 CERT is a positive and realistic approach to emergency and disaster situations where citizens will be initially on their own and their actions can make a difference. Through training, citizens can:

·       manage utilities and put out small fires;

·        treat the three killers by opening airways, controlling bleeding, and treating for shock;

·        provide basic medical aid;

·       search for and rescue victims safely;

·       organize themselves and spontaneous volunteers to be effective during an emergency.

The CERT training is a 20 hour course FREE of charge to anyone:

  • 18 or over
  • Live or work in Henry County
  • Able to pass a Criminal History background check

Space is limited so sign up today!  (Please indicate which class you would like to attend)
