Staten Island Advance
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Becoming a member of a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) will turn you into a volunteer at the ready, someone who can pitch in when a disaster occurs or when crowd or traffic control is needed at an event. They assist local community groups and New York's first responders
Training and certification are a must, though, and the opportunity to take the training course on Staten Island is coming up in March. The city Office of Emergency Management will offer the 11-week CERT training course on Wednesdays beginning March 11 at 6:30 p.m. in New Dorp High School.
A minimum of 25 people are needed for the course to be conducted here; otherwise, trainees have to travel to another borough. A maximum of 40 people can be accepted.
CERT training focuses on the following skill-sets: Light urban search and rescue, fire suppression, triage, traffic control, radio communications and urban emergency preparedness. Members of the team conduct periodic emergency-response drills and community outreach. Graduates will automatically become part of the Port Richmond CERT team.
After training, a volunteer is expected to attend at least two CERT meetings per month and participate in exercises and/or community outreach events each year.
