In a previous thread about CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) classes, I felt there was some concern about "resources" that might be listed or taken - for the greater good - in the event of an emergency. Well; I've picked up my manual and read through it. It does have an "Equipment Resources" Form. The items on it are: Fire extinguisher, Wrench, Flashlight, First Aid Kit and Blankets. That's it. No explanation on how to break into your shed and borrow the big stuff. The class covers (based on manual overview): Emergency Preparedness Fire Safety Emergency Medical Operations Light Search and Rescue CERT Organization Disaster Psychology Terrorism and CERT Disaster Simulation I'll be taking the class beginning next week through the end of March. If you Monkeys are interested, I'll keep you posted on what's taught so that you might determine whether you're really interested in finding a class in your area or would rather stay away from this type of training.
