Community Emergency Response Team Training
4th Community Emergency Response Team training to be held at Ambrose University (Calgary) which is a beautiful facility and very comfortable for our training sessions.
After a large-scale disaster, local governments do not have the capacity to manage the over-whelming needs of an entire community. With dependence on municipal services, residents and families are exposed to long-term recovery efforts. Increasing events in our Province such as the Slave Lake Fire, H1N1, and Alberta Flood, creates an urgency to find a solution. Building networks of prepared individuals and local agencies, that collaborate effectively, reduce dependence on municipal services and mitigate the damage caused by large scale events.
After a disaster, people want to help. Bridges of Love’s Community Emergency Response Team training; assures a SAFE “Neighbours helping Neighbours” response. CERT is a grass roots strategy that is both practical and realistic; to strengthen community safety and preparedness, through increased civic participation.
