CERT Training (Community Emergency Response Training)
Rapid Neighborhood Damage Assessment Training
Family Health and Safety Training
Hosted by North Logan City, this training occurs the fourth Wednesday of each month. Meetings are held at 7 p.m. at 1600 East 2500 North in North Logan.
In case of an emergency and the family is separated, the family should have a plan that will reunite the various family members. Location sites should be selected adjacent to the family home, at a neighbors’, in the neighborhood, and in the community to allow for various levels of emergencies.
A well-supplied first aid kit must be tailored to the individual needs of your family. Existing health problems in the family, for example, heart disorders, diabetes, serious allergies, asthma, or ulcer, may make it necessary to include specific medicines in your first aid kit. It is also necessary to consider the ages of family members and what special needs they might have. In addition to specific needs of your family members on the form below is a basic list of medical and first aid supplies recommended for all. You are urged to discuss this topic with your physician so that they may advise you on any medications you might need and how to properly use them.
AT LEAST ONE ADULT MEMBER OF EVERY FAMILY SHOULD BECOME FAMILIAR WITH THE FOUR MAIN FIRST AID FUNCTIONS:
AIRWAY – BREATHING – CIRCULATION – SHOCK
ALL ARE LIFE-THREATENING AND SHOULD BE ACTED ON QUICKLY IN AN EMERGENCY
Print and fill out the Family Emergency Form and Medical/First Aid Supplies to keep in your home.
Alongside a First aid kit, each family should prepare a 72-hour portable emergency kit. This kit serves to have basic supplies and necessities in the case of an emergency.
Understanding how to communicate with emergency personnel during an emergency can be vital.
Each family should make two assessment communication banners to be kept with their emergency preparedness materials. These banners should be 4” by 36” and one green and one red. In the event of an emergency immediately hang a banner in a visible place near the front entrance.
These banners allow for immediate communication of the status for you and your family. Civil authorities will be able to assess those families within our area that require assistance.
Red Banner: Emergency medical assistance needed NOW
Green Banner: All family members at this location are accounted for and okay.
Communications are by telephone or will be set up on two-way radio at the churches and schools in the area.
