In an emergency, how can you save your own life?  And the lives of your family members?

Find out how!   Take a free course from the Los Angeles Fire Department’s Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), starting March 9 at the Beverly Center.

Whether it’s an earthquake, fire, or other disaster, you will be affected by an emergency situation.  Do you know what to do?  Disasters will overwhelm emergency services including police, fire, and paramedics, so you could be on your own for days – and possibly weeks.  Learn how to protect yourself, your family, and your community during emergency conditions.

The free CERT course will enable you to:

• manage utilities and put out small fires

• treat the three biggest medical killers

• control bleeding and treat people who are in shock

• provide basic medical aid

• search for missing individuals and rescue them safely

• organize your neighbors and community members quickly

• collect disaster intelligence to support police and fire personnel when they arrive

The CERT course will take place in the Beverly Center’s Community Room (entrance on Level 3), 8500 Beverly Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90048.

It will be held on seven consecutive Wednesday evenings:  March 9, 16, 23, 30, and April 6, 13, and 20.  Each session will last from 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm.

You must register in advance.  Free registration is open to all residents of the City of Los Angeles who are 18 years or older.

To register, e-mail Tara Brown at taramcw@mac.com.

This valuable training is brought to you by Mid City West Community Council and the Los Angeles Fire Department.
