Citizen Training

We believe that our community will be a better prepared community if we enable them with the education they need to take care of themselves and those around them. We are flexible with meeting our community needs. If you have any special requests, or need help creating a program with emergency preparedness, please let us know and we will be more than happy to assist.


We have a very successful citizen training program called CERT, or Community Emergency Response Team Training. Please go to the CERT page for more information.

Basic Terrorism Awareness Class

The Basic Terrorism Awareness course covers an array of topics, including identifying terrorism and weapons of mass destruction; reporting suspicious activity and forming an emergency plan. This is approximately a one hour class.

Disaster Preparedness Presentations

An OEM representative will visit your organization and/or group to discuss multiple areas of emergency preparedness, including but not limited to how to create emergency kits, create emergency communication plans, business preparedness etc. Groups such as (but not limited to) Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts etc, can request a field trip to our Emergency Operations Center along with this presentation.
