Learn more about emergency? Disaster? In your community?!? #NatlPrep

Many local communities provide free training! Yes, my favorite four-letter word. F-R-E-E

Plan to attend classes to learn more about how your community is making a difference in emergency disaster preparedness & response #NatlPrep

I do tons of training, and Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) is a great place to start to learn what to do in an emergency. Best part? Almost all the training is offered free to many communities across this great nation.

#PlanAhead and learn good stuff!
