In an effort to prepare community members for emergencies, Aurora will sponsor two Community Emergency Response Team training classes this fall.

CERT students learn to care for themselves, their neighbors and the wider community in the first three days following a major disaster. Students learn fire suppression, including fire extinguisher training, disaster medical operations, light search and rescue operations, pre- and post-storm CERT operations, and general disaster preparedness.
