How did you and your neighbors fare during the past few years’ weather emergencies? Citizens who would like to be better prepared to help their neighbors in the next emergency are invited to join Transition Litchfield:

East Litchfield Firehouse, 365 East Litchfield Road, Litchfield, CT 06750

Wednesday, November 28th at 6:30 PM

Tom Vannini of Region 5 of the Department of Emergency Management and Homeland Security will give an introduction to the Citizens’ Emergency Response Team training.  http://www.citizencorps.gov/cert/
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.

Soup and bread will be served at 6:30, and the presentation will start at 7.
