Winter 2016 CERT Class 

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.
Please continue reading on the Sachse News website:

Sachse Citizens, are you a CERT member?

Do you know what is meant by "72-hours"?

If not, ask a Sachse CERT member.


Sachse Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is a group of citizens, organized as a neighborhood-based team that receives special training to enhance their ability to recognize, respond to, and recover from a major emergency or disaster situation.  Teams are trained by professional responders in areas that will help take care of themselves and others before, during and after a major emergency.
