Sachse CERT program educates the public about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as light search & rescue, disaster medical operations, team organization and fire safety. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT trained individuals learn to assist their family, neighbors and co-workers following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help.
Training is conducted by FEMA certified staff and First Responders using a nationally recognized curriculum. This course gives students training in disaster psychology, first aid, triage, search & rescue, fire suppression, hazard recognition, disaster types and more!
The course concludes with a Capstone Drill where students work together as a team through a simulated disaster scene, using the hands-on skills learned. The drill is a continuation of the learning process and instructors are embedded with the teams to provide guidance.
Be sure to submit your online registration ASAP to reserve your seating!
Minimum Age: 18 years of age, as of the first day of class, or 16 with parental consent and parental participation.
The course is open to adjacent cities, but Sachse residents will have first priority as the class fills.
Active participation with a CERT group is NOT a requirement upon completion, but MANY rewarding opportunities to give back to your community are available once you are trained. The G-317 certificate is recognized in every state and municipality.
CERT Class Fee $20 - this fee pays for disposable supplies, lunch both days and other costs for conducting the CERT G-317 class. The fee is refundable in case of cancelation up to 48-hours prior to the start of the class. No refunds for cancelations within 48-hours of the class or no shows.

From the Sachse News
Acting out an emergency to CERT-ify trainees
Rooms in Northplace Church in Sachse were dark last weekend and screams and pleas from "victims" were heard as members of the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) scrambled through the building to save lives wherever they could.
Thankfully this wasn’t a real emergency. It was the 2016 CERT class completing their final scenario – the Capstone Drill.
