The training for becoming a CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) is invaluable. I am not only learning how to help others but I am getting my family emergency planning set up.
I never used a fire extinguisher before. We learned P.A.S.S. – Pull, Aim, Squeeze, and Sweep. Fun but now if the emergency hits I can help effectively.
