All Mapleton citizens, the city has started a C.E.R.T. (Community Emergency Response Team) training course to train citizens on basic disaster response skills such as Fire Safety, Disaster Medical & Triage, Light Search & Rescue, and Terrorism. The course is full at this point but we are planning on holding other courses in the future. Please contact Therin Garrett at (cert@mapleton.org) to get signed up for the next one.

Also if there are any citizens who have previously attended any CERT course in the past, no matter how long ago, please email Therin so he can make sure you are in the city’s database for any emergency or non-emergency events that the city may need your help with.

CERT is for any citizens, including youth, who are willing and able to volunteer to help in various types of emergency events/disasters or even things like crowd control at local events.
