Community Emergency Response Team (C.E.R.T.)

Overview
C.E.R.T. is about readiness, people helping people, rescuer safety and doing the greatest good for the greatest number. C.E.R.T. is a positive and realistic approach to emergency and disaster situations where citizens will initially be on their own and their actions can make a difference.

The Parker Police Department and City of Lone Tree will offer C.E.R.T. training for Parker and Lone Tree residents in 2016 on Saturdays dating Sept. 10 through Oct. 1 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. During the training, citizens will learn to shut off utilities, put out small fires, treat the 3 killers by opening airways, controlling bleeding and treating for shock, provide basic medical aid, search for and rescue victims safely and organize themselves and spontaneous volunteers to be effective during a disaster.

The C.E.R.T. training is provided free of charge. Your only expense will be your time and commitment. Each student will receive a certificate of completion after the final day of class. 

Requirements
Anyone age 15 and over is eligible to attend this program. All persons under 18 will be required to have a parent or guardian’s written permission to participate. A criminal history check will be required and each applicant will be assessed individually. All participants will also be required to sign a liability waiver to participate in the training.
