The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program has announced the following classes in October and November at the Carbon County Emergency Management Agency. Classes run 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.

The dates are Oct. 6, 13, and 20; and Nov. 2, 9, 16.

The CERT program is designed to introduce county residents to introductory courses in basic first aid, triage, disaster preparedness, fire suppression, light search and rescue, and terrorism awareness. Neighbors helping neighbors is the program's goal.

In the event of a disaster, as a CERT member you would be recognized as a volunteer under the direction of the EMC.
