JAMESTOWN, N.D. (NewsDakota.com) – Jamestown High School Freshman were faced with a grisly scenario filled with fake screams and gruesome makeup Thursday morning.
The training was set up as part of the Community Emergency Response Training (CERT), which has been held for seven years by the Jamestown Public School District.
Stutsman County Assistant Emergency Manager Sarah Van De Velde reported that the 114 Freshman students handled the fake situation well.
After the scene, students participated in a “graduation ceremony”, receiving a certificate. Stutsman County Emergency Manager Jerry Bergquist stated that the program has gained nationwide attention from organizations.
CERT has now trained almost 1000 students in Jamestown since it first began seven years ago.
Below are some photos and video from the event.
