Whether everyday emergencies like injuries, fires, and outages or large scale disasters, community preparedness starts with you. If you were there, would you be part of the problem or solution? The Westshore Regional Community Emergency Response Team (WSC) is offering free classes on topics such as disaster preparedness, emergency medical considerations, search and rescue procedures, fire suppression, disaster psychology, and more. The 20-hour FEMA course is conducted by local safety professionals. Teens welcome. Westshore residents who are over 18 years of age, successfully complete training, and pass a background check are eligible for team membership. Team membership is not required to participate in the free training. Visit www.westshorecert.org for more program and team information.
