The January – June 20009 CERT schedule has been posted on LVAlert.com. Unless they are planning on expanding it some more and this is just a preliminary training schedule, there are only 2 sessions planned for the first 6-months of 2009.
The first session will be held on Thursdays from January 15 – February 19 from 6 pm – 9 pm at the Las Vegas Fire Training Center on the corner of Bonanza and Mojave at 633 N. Mojave. The second session will be held on Wednesdays from February 4 – March 11, also from 6 pm – 9 pm, at the Silver Mesa Community Center on Allen, just north of Alexander, at 4025 Allen Lane, In North Las Vegas.
I highly encourage all the readers of Mike’s World News to take these free, informative trainings. We all remember the bang up job that FEMA did after Katrina. Don’t rely on others to save you and your family in a disaster. Empower yourself through knowledge. The knowledge you gain could very easily save your life or the life of someone you love.
