Many would like to learn survival skills and train in a group .... have any of you looked into the CERT program?

 

https://www.fema.gov/community-emergency-response-teams

 

I think it could be a benefit at several levels.  (1) Learn skills,  (2) meet like minded people/network, (3) become certified in emergency response, (4) get an insiders look at local contingency plans, (5) discover additional resources, (6) have "government" ID that could make movement easier in a situation. 

 

So...I would like some feed-back...anyone been through the program?  Look forward to reading your thoughts about this.

years ago I was an EMT,  I see many classes like this a positive direct action benefiting the community you live in,  First responders are the First ones on the scene if your trained your actions could well save a life protect private property,  There are many programs like the Civil Air Patrol,  Food banks search & rescue there are dog teams and equine based searcher teams If you have an interest there is a niche for you I know it.s ancient but there still need to be people monitoring CB radio channel 9 and 13 for marine.  Another action people can take is visting people in homes meals on wheels organize neighborhood watch as well as be a volunteer fire department, in any and all these you will meet people understand the mechanisms and structure of emergency services in your county and state.

 

Where I live we come together I and other used our boats to rescue people our local government has done a fair job on setting up shelters churches have opened their doors     a good time to make a point out where are the Atheist and mooslims organizations in  time of disaster ? OH thats right their the ones making it worse,or doing nothing  A few agnostics have come out and stated that Christians are not blowing themselves up making hate speeches promoting murder and honor killings or killing those that leave the faith, so we are not the problem IMHO,

 

as far as a place to start a first aid / CPR by the Red Cross  course EMT basic skills and then look at joining a volunteer fire department even if your not superman or woman these are a immense help if your in a personal situation.  If you live on the water you need to train as a life guard and find what your local fire department needs for search and rescue. last but not least suicide prevention hot line operator you will find there are conferences classes and meetings where you will meet many people and grow your network of sources and resources.

    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
