CERT Annual Refresher 2016

CERT would like to thank all who participated in our annual CERT refresher class on the campus of Kauai High School.  CERT members from Princeville, Kilauea, Anahola, Kapaa, Lihue, and Teen CERT members from Kauai High School and Kapaa High School along with KFD instructors were all on hand to expand their training on communications, mass casualty triage, light search and rescue, fire extinguishers, splinting and bandaging, and leveraging and cribbing.

Special thank you to Lorna Tresler-Basquez from Kauai High School for allowing us use of their facilities, the Kauai Amateur Radio Club's Tad Miura, Kapaa High School's Colonel Levoit and Sargent Verasami for their support for the JROTC students, Elton Oshiro from Kauai Civil Defense, and Captain Steven Doi for food, beverages, and logistics.  We could not have conducted such a successful day without your support!

 

CERT = Community Emergency Response Team

FREE "CERT"  basic 24 hour trainings are being offered throughout the Island of Kauai during 2016. It is our goal to have Community Emergency Response Teams trained in every neighborhood. For more information or to register for the County CERT program contact Firefighter I John Cornell or Justin Kinoshita at kfdcert@kauai.gov or click on the link in the Register for CERT Classes section.

Additional information on the National "CERT" program may be found on the Citizen Corps' CERT website located at: http://www.citizencorps.gov/cert/ .

Mission Statement

The Kauai CERT program trains citizens to be prepared for disasters of any kind, and to take care of themselves, family, friends, and neighbors when professional emergency responders cannot respond.  The CERT program establishes volunteer teams to assist professional responders during major emergencies, provides emergency management resources, and provide opportunities and projects that improve Kauai's disaster resilience.
