Disaster Training Available Soon
Free of charge training is available to anyone interested in learning how to respond to a disaster. Community emergency response team or C.E.R.T. classes start soon.
Darrel Hildebrandt with Rochester Police crime prevention says the training will include teaching a team of two people how to take care of themselves, their homes, and their neighbors should a tornado or some other disaster strike the area. The training is funded through FEMA.
A C.E.R.T. kit is included with the class.
For those interested in the training, it starts on Tuesday, October fourth at the law enforcement center in Rochester.
It's from 6:30 in the evening until 9:30 for a total of seven weeks. Those interested in registering can call 507-285-8288.

The Oct class is full next avalible one is January 12th.. 6;30 pm. I called and checked..And you do need a partner for the class and preferably one from your neigborhood. You cant regester single and they pair you up. Sounded like a intense training class as they will do mock up disaster sites and first aid with actors ploaying a part of wounded..

I have Been for the Burnsville class. You really work close with the Fire and LE in a disaster, checking damaged buildings and evacing wounded. They even have us attend annual drills with them. I HIGHLY recomend it if you want to actualy help you community in the event of a disaster.
