Community Emergency Response Team Training:
Major disasters stretch the resources of any city or county. It is estimated that regular emergency services will be unable to respond to most calls during the first 72 hours after a major disaster, such as a hurricane. The number of people who will need help and the inaccessibility of many neighborhoods due to damage and debris will prevent immediate professional aid. As a result, individuals and their communities need to be prepared to assist each other during these critical hours.
