I'm in the North Shore New Orleans area of Louisiana. I am currently in training for CERT The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community so I joined this forum. I am looking forward to learning and sharing knowledge.

Welcome to the forum.

My town is also offering the same CERT class. The wife and I signed up for it last week. Our first (of 9) class is next week. It sounds like partial beginner emergency responder training along with some prepping info too.

I'm going to be listening carefully to the others in the class to see if some other closet preppers might be in attendance. If there are, they, like me, might be the quiet ones that don't discuss what they have. :)
