The purpose of Henrico County Community Emergency Response Team (HCCERT) is to provide training to citizens to help cope in the time period immediately following a disaster when local public safety resources may be overwhelmed. HCCERT’s learn basic first aid, search and rescue, and fire suppression techniques. But more importantly, HCCERT members learn how to PREPARE for a disaster long before one occurs.
By being prepared and knowing how to respond to a situation, a HCCERT member, family, friends, and co-workers will be able to cope with the stresses of a disaster.
Fall 2017 CERT registration is open. Classes will start Tuesday 09/05/17 (morning classes) and Thursday 09/07/17 (evening classes).
