2014 CERT Training Begins in Grayson County

Posted:

GRAYSON COUNTY, TX-- When last month's ice storm struck, were you ready?

For many, that answer was no and tonight, dozens of people in Grayson County are trying to change that by attending CERT classes. CERT stands for community emergency response team and the training classes focus on disaster preparedness.

When an emergency occurs, CERT members can use their training to give critical support to anyone who needs it until help arrives.

"The amazing part about it is the diverse people who come," assistant trainer Jennifer Davis said. "We have people from the medical field, we have engineers and we have people who just want to volunteer. The group of people really make a great team together."

These classes began tonight at Grayson College's main campus and will be held one night a week through September. For more information, click here.
