Are you CERT material?
Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) teaches you first aid and how to help your family—and your neighbors—in an emergency.
Might I add—it also could be good networking and contacts for you?
You learn teamwork in the 20-30 hour course, which is crafted to the needs of your community.
You will learn to make household items into bandages, how to make stretcher out of blankets, how to communicate with other CERT members and the govt.
There are nine CERT zones in the US—each contains a storage unit of supplies.
You will learn all about it. Start by going to: www.citizencorps.gov/cert/
You will be doing good work.
Unpaid, but good.
