The Kenai Peninsula Borough Office of Emergency Management is pleased to present a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) class in Homer.

Exact class location will be announced. There is no cost or obligation for the course, however space is limited and minimum enrollments are required in order to conduct the course.

CERT training equips individuals to care for themselves and work as a team to care for their neighborhood, school or surrounding community until help arrives. CERT members maintain and refine their skills by participating in exercises and activities in their own communities. Additional training is available for those who wish to augment their skills and there are many volunteer opportunities for projects to improve community emergency awareness and preparedness. All materials will be provided, and the course is ability oriented - people of all skill levels and physical abilities are welcome.

Beginning as a Community Hall in 1956 serving as the volunteer fire department, Central Emergency Services continued to grow to become the Emergency Service Area for some 32,000 Kenai Peninsula residents.
