Peachtree City Police offer Teen CERT summer camp program

From Staff Reports news@newnan.com The Peachtree City Police Department will be hosting a Teen Community Emergency Response Team "summer camp" the week of June 4-8. The summer camp will be held daily from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The Teen CERT program educates young adults about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area. Additionally, it trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Prospective candidates must be between 13 and 17 years of age at the time of registration and a resident of Georgia. Applicants will be required to complete an enrollment form and applicable waivers. The application and waivers must be signed by a parent or legal guardian. A local check will be conducted to determine the background of the participants as a condition to acceptance into the program. There is no charge to attend this class; however, the class size will be limited to 18 participants. A meeting with the parents/legal guardians of those admitted into the program will be held prior to the first class. More information about the Teen CERT can be obtained by visiting the police department's website at www.peachtree-city.org/police (click on the CERT link) or by calling 770-487-8866. Application forms are available online, or may be obtained from the library, city hall, or the police department front lobby. The application deadline is May 25.
