CERT Training in La Porte

Clipart picture of a rescue searchThere will be an eight-week Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training class sponsored by the La Porte Office of Emergency Management (OEM) from January 19th-March 8th, 2012. Classes will be held each Thursday from 6:30 – 9:30 p.m. at the La Porte Fire Training Facility.

CERT training is a Federal Emergency Management Agency program that educates citizens in basic disaster skills. These citizen-responders work as part of a neighborhood or workplace team to assist as needed in a disaster when first responders are overwhelmed or not immediately available.

Training sessions cover disaster preparedness, fire suppression, basic disaster medical operations, light search and rescue, disaster psychology, and team organization. Pre-registration is required for this class.

Please visit http://www.lpoem.org/ or contact La Porte OEM at 281-470-0010 for more information or to register for the class.

GRINCH VISITS LA PORTE COMMUNITY LIBRARY

A certain green person greeted the storytime children on Tuesday, December 20. Yes, that's right the Grinch made his annual visit to La Porte. Luckily he never tries to take our tree or the ornaments but instead hands out cookies and hugs. I guess his heart did "grow three sizes that day."
