CERT TRAINING IN THE

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

COURSE WILL PREPARE REGION TO MANAGE DISASTERS

(5 April 2017)  When disaster strikes without warning, many public safety agencies are overwhelmed and unable to assist everyone affected.  By empowering members of the community to assist during catastrophes, it allows emergency responders to direct resources to the highest priorty problems.  Enter GMR's CERT program - or Citizens Emergency Response Training.  Taught by GMR in developing countries, it focuses on emergency medical care, fire extinguishment, building assessments and stabilization, search techniques and hazard abatement.  Our course is designed to be administered to first responders who will then teach it to members of their community.  Those community members will then be called upon to act in the event of a disaster.  

The 3 day course will be taught April 10-12 in Cotui, in the heart of the Dominican Republic.  It is our 5th training course in the region and has been in the works for quite some time.  GMR will be aided by local interpreters and members of the fire department to assist in the training as well.  Follow us on Facebook (Global Mission Readiness) and Instagram (@GMRWorldwide) throughout the training for updates.

Thanks to all who have supported this endeavor!  Wish us luck!
