Milton Township Special Programs
During a catastrophic disaster, there is a very good chance that your neighborhood will be on its own during the early stages of the event. After such a disaster, citizens will naturally volunteer to help. Without proper training, these people can expose themselves and others to potential injury and even death. Experience has shown that basic training in disaster survival and rescue skills improves the ability of citizens to survive until first responders or other assistance arrives. The basic course will include those components necessary to get the team started and become capable of performing basic CERT functions. Each member must complete 21 hours of classes in the following areas to become certified. Classes are scheduled to accommodate the needs of each team and are available at convenient times.
