CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA —Are you interested in training that will better prepare you for disasters and emergencies? Chesterfield County’s popular Community Emergency Response Team, or CERT, training is scheduled to begin Feb. 21.

Topics include light duty search and rescue, fire safety and suppression, basic medical care, terrorism awareness, emergency communications and disaster psychology. Graduates earn certificates and receive CERT emergency gear.
