CERT/Emergency Prep


Sandbags

 

     Cottonwood Heights is dedicated to the safety of its residents.  We encourage everyone to prepare for possible emergency situations in our city.  This newsletter prepared by Assistant Emergency Manager Dawn Black has valuable information that can help you understand and prepare for threats that are specific to our area.

CERT

     The CERT training class schedule is posted by Unified Fire Authority on their web site at www.unifiedfire.org (click "Register for Classes").  For questions on CERT classes, call UFA at 801-743-7150 or e-mail them at communityassistance@ufa-slco.org.  Registration for CERT classes is done entirely online through the UFA website.  Classes are open to anyone, regardless of where they live.  
 
     There is a $30 fee for CERT classes.  This fee pays for a course manual and handouts, a kit of first aid items, a hard hat, high-visibility safety vest, and particulate masks.  Those who attend are required to bring their own leather gloves and safety goggles or glasses, and it is recommended they wear sturdy work boots for practical exercises.
