This isn't a product. This is a class to educate others involved with the community, on emergency and disaster awareness.

This program should be in every city. This program involves excersises on what to do, how to react, and how to check the area to save lives. I enlisted in this program, and am the head of the Medical Triage, after the rains that hit here in our area for a whole month. It taught me things didnt know about how to protect your family and the area around you. During and after a disaster or emergency you are the leader, you take action along with your partners to help the area, and the patients. Like with hurricane katrina our area went out to LA. to help those affected by the hurricane. It was very rewarding to know that me and my sister are in such an awesome community awarness program. If you would like more information about the CERT orginization feel free to ask. upon enrolling you are given a cert bag- that they start you out with that you can add things to== if you come across an accident on the road and the officers or medics have not arrived then you help- or if you see someone trapped in a room that has been hit by a tornado...then you are there until emergency services arrive. which could be hours to days depending on the situation. you just keep the bag in the trunk just incase you may need it. you never know. this is a very educational class. if you have alot of neighbors or children at home, then this is a class that you as a medical professional would not want to miss. check with your local PD, or FD to see if there is a class around you. if you have no luck then i will try to help...teaming up with the community couldnt be more challenging and rewarding at the same time.
