North Christian County will be even more prepared for a disaster after Community Emergency Response Team training this upcoming weekend in Crofton.
The training will be at Crofton Baptist Church, 155 College St., from 6 until 9pm Friday evening and 8am to 5pm Saturday.
Pennyrile Citizens Corps Council Regional Operations Officer Frank Brown organized the Kelly Community “CERT Team” and says this weekend’s training is an opportunity for anyone interested in helping their neighbor in the face of disaster to learn more.
Attendees will be provided lunch on Saturday and graduates will receive a CERT equipment bag with tools and safety equipment.
The Kelly Community Organization has grown substantially and Brown says he’s seen the same kind of interest in Crofton.
CERT teams have responded locally to disasters such as ice storms, floods and tornadoes.
