Hamden CERT Basic Training & Ongoing Classes
During the 2 days of August 29th & 30th, 2018, 20 Hamden CERT Members took an 8 hour course and became certified as Mental Health First Responders.
This 2 day class instructed our members to recognize, support and protect any individual who may be experiencing a mental health emergency. This training will also help our members who will be assisting our community during major emergencies like weather related disasters, operating at an Emergency Shelter or assisting individuals who are impacted by any unsettling incident that may take them out of their customary routine. Thank you to our members who took the time to learn the skills necessary to improve our services to our community.
CPR and AED Training are just 2 of the subjects that are part of the continued, ongoing training for CERT Members.
CERT Members regularly undergo CPR, AED Training and Recertification. A special thanks goes out to Hamden Fire Chief Merwede and also to Assistant Fire Chief Lubowicki for their efforts to conduct these trainings.
