FREE Disaster Preparedness Training with Special Invite to Veterans

“All disasters begin and end at the local level” (FEMA). Community preparedness starts with you. The Westshore Regional Community Emergency Response Team (WSC) is offering free classes on topics such as disaster preparedness, emergency medical considerations, search and rescue procedures, fire suppression, disaster psychology, and 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.

The Ohio Department of Public Safety and the WSC extend a special invitation to our veterans. Your previous training and expertise is invaluable to your community. Visit www.westshorecert.org for more program and team information.

Do your part to keep your family and our neighborhoods safe and prepared. To register or for more information contact WSC Coordinator Tricia Granfors at (440) 716-4135 or granforst@north-olmsted.com. Space is limited.

Training begins Saturday, October 5. The five consecutive Saturday morning classes will be held at St. John Medical Center and the City of Westlake Service Center from 8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
