Page 4 THE VILLADOM TIMES IV • February 25, 2009 Mahwah Across the nation and here in New Jersey, communities are giving top priority to the tasks of planning and preparing for potential threats from acts of terrorism. In any emergency, whether resulting from natural disaster, crime, terrorist related act or an emergency of any kind, local government resources will be the first responders and the first line of defense. Following a major disaster, first responders who provide emergency services will not be able to meet the demands placed upon them. Factors such as the number of victims, communication failures, and roadblocks may prevent people from accessing the type of services they have come to expect at a moment’s notice through 911. People will have to rely on each other for help to meet their immediate CERT training offered to community members needs until professional emergency responders can reach them. The CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) program provides residents with basic training about what to do before, during, and after a disaster. Most importantly, the training aids the participant in protecting themselves and their families during emergency situations. Trained CERT members may also participate in helping their communities through organized or county-level emergency management. The next free training session will begin March 4 at 7 p.m. and will run for eight consecutive Wednesday nights at the Bergen Law and Public Safety Institute in Mahwah. At the completion of the program, basic CERT safety equipment will be issued to each successful participant. Class size is limited, so immediate registration is encouraged to ensure a place in this class. Mahwah residents may contact OEM Coordinator Raymond Roe at (201) 831-2075 or e-mail for an application or additional information.
