Mon Health Dept offers emergency response training

MORGANTOWN — In 95 percent of all emergencies, victims and bystanders provide the first immediate assistance on the scene.
In instances of a natural or manmade disaster, members of the community should have basic skills and knowledge on how to react and protect themselves and their families and community members.
This is where Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) comes in. Free CERT training — to be held May 5-6 at Monongalia County Health Department in Morgantown — will provide a firm foundation in emergency response training for attendees.
CERT is a nationally recognized Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) training course that educates people about disaster preparedness and trains them in basic disaster response skills such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization and disaster medical operations.
The course will be taught by Lee Fuell, volunteer coordinator for MCHD Threat Preparedness, and assisted by Tyler Anderson and Joseph Klass, MCHD Threat Prep coordinators.
The training will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days in the lower level conference room at MCHD.
Invited to participate in this training are any community members such as students, religious groups, businesses and members of other groups and organization.
