The two-day training was sponsored by the Hungry Valley Fire Department, RSIC Emergency Services and the Inter-Tribal Emergency Response Commission (ITERC).
The participants learned about fire safety, disaster medical triage, the incident command structure, light search and rescue, disaster psychology and the definition and warning signs of terrorism. Quartz-Holling said that some of the most important knowledge she took away was how to access a dangerous situation.
Research indicates that under emergency conditions, family members, fellow employees and neighbors spontaneously try to help each other.
In this country, the CERT concept was developed and implemented by the Los Angeles City Fire Department in 1985. According to David Hunkup, the director of emergency services for the RSIC, after last month’s CERT training, the RSIC is on its way to building a safer community. While state and federal resources can be activated to help, there may be a delay for them getting to those who need them. Thayer, who also works for ITERC as the Tribal Clinic National Incident Management System (NIMS) Coordinator, said that CERT is about readiness. Hunkup added that the next step to building a CERT is to continue offering training to the community and to extol its benefits.
