March 21,  2018 - Hampton's Emergency Management Office has a new Community Emergency Response Team class starting April 5. Sign up now for four weeks of training on everything from disaster preparedness to light search and rescue. Classes will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays  - April 5, 10, 12, 17, 19, 24, and 26 from 6-9 p.m., with a final practice on April 28 from 8 a.m.-1 p.m.

CERT training teaches volunteers about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their community, and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. 

Using knowledge learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT volunteers can assist others in their community following a disaster when professional responders may not be immediately available. CERT volunteers are also encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking an active role in emergency preparedness projects. Participants get a certificate of completion when classes are over.
