Emergency Training – Class #1

I’m taking CERT training at the local firehouse and thought I’d share some of the things I’ve learned.

1. Have an out of state emergency contact person. Your family would know to contact that person in case they can’t get hold of you.

2. Texting might have a better chance of getting through than regular phone calls.

3. The only way out of St. Louis that doesn’t involve going over a bridge is Manchester Rd.

After a Disaster:

  • Assess your own situation and make sure you’ve taken of your safety needs.
  • Clear the roads. Emergency and responders need to be able to get to the victims.  Nails have stopped a lot of emergency vehicles
