Were you prepared for Superstorm Sandy? Be part of the solution for yourself, your family, and your neighbors. Community preparedness starts with you, whether it’s preparing for a hurricane, an extended power outage, a pandemic, or a severe winter storm. The Westshore Regional Community Emergency Response Team (WSC) is offering free classes on topics such as disaster preparedness, basic injury assessment and medical treatment, search and rescue procedures, fire suppression, disaster psychology, and much more. The 20-hour FEMA course is conducted by local safety professionals. Westshore residents who are over 18 years of age, successfully complete training, and pass a background check are eligible for team membership.
Do your part to keep our region safe and prepared. To indicate your interest in the free classes or for more information, contact WSC Coordinator Tricia Granfors at (440) 716-4135 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Space is limited.
