Millcreek Emergency Management has partnered with Unified Fire Authority and St. Mark's Hospital to holding Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Basic courses for the community in the Spring and Fall. (see detailed schedule below)
CERT HYBRID COURSE
This is a new hybrid course with most of the lecture material presented in an online interactive portal. This allows the participant to progress through the material at their own pace leading up to the monthly hands-on skills classroom portion. You can start at any class, we will start again at the beginning of the year.
All hands-on classes are to be taught once a month for six months and then repeated again for six months. Class times run from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and are held at the following three locations Millcreek City Hall, UFA fire station #101 and at St. Marks Hospital in the classroom right outside of the ER Entrance, named 1J. Please see the detailed schedule for specific locations for each day.
