Registration open for emergency response classes in Huntley

HUNTLEY – The Huntley police are looking for volunteers to participate in upcoming classes designed to prepare residents for disasters.

The Community Emergency Response Team, or CERT, is a national program for residents, business owners and community leaders to learn how to prepare for disasters and how to help others after disaster happens.

Police, firefighters and CERT trainers will conduct classes on consecutive Wednesdays from Sept. 10 through Oct. 15. Each class lasts from 6 to 9 p.m., either at the Huntley Police Department or the Huntley Firefighter Annex building.

The classes cover disaster response, disaster simulation drills, disaster medical operations, fire suppression techniques, and light search and rescue.

To register, contact police Sgt. Scott Sullivan at 847-515-5413 or email ssullivan@huntley.il.us.
