JAMESTOWN(NewsDakota.com) – If there’s a disaster in your area, do you know what to do?
Stutsman County Emergency Management wants to help you answer “yes” to that question as they sponsor free classes for adult Community Emergency Response Teams. Emergency manager Jerry Bergquist says the classes are about preparing people to take action in case of a disaster.
Classes will be held at the James Valley Career and Technology Center in Jamestown during the month of October. It will consist of four evening classes and one disaster simulation at the end of the classes. Components include fire safety, light search and rescue, medical triage, emergency family preparedness and disaster psychology.
Bergquist says they need at least 15 participants for the class to happen. Emergency management has helped sponsor Teen CERT training the last few years at Jamestown High School. To enroll in the adult classes call 701-252-8841. Deadline to enroll is Sept. 24. Classes are scheduled for 6 to 10 p.m. on Oct. 2, 3, 9, 11 and 15.
