As the Program Coordinator for the Windcrest Disaster Preparedness & Response Team, also called CERT, Community Emergency Response Team. I would like to introduce you to CERT and invite you to our upcoming training. Each year, the Windcrest CERT Team sponsors the IS-317 Basic CERT course along with the Bexar County Instructor Team. We educate volunteers about disaster preparedness for the natural and man-made hazards that may impact their area and train them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.

Following successful training, participants are issued a Completion certificate from Bexar County as well as Windcrest's Chief Ballew, Windcrest Emergency Operations Manager. Participants are also issued an ID badge with back ground check. Each participant will have the choice to be a part of the WIndcrest or Bexar County CERT team, depending on where they live, or they might decide, in a disaster, to take care of themselves and their neighbors which can also free up the emergency crews to respond in areas that do not have trained volunteers.
Please consider joining us for this 3 session FREE training: Feb. 15th, 6:00 to 10:00. Sat. Feb. 16th 8:00 to 5:00, (Lunch provided), and Friday Feb. 22nd 6:00 to 10:00. Snacks and beverages provided as well.
Location: WIndcrest Civic Center 9310 Jim Seal Dr. Windcrest, Tx. 78239
