    CERT Graduation Drills

    Post by Cabrillo-1 on Thu Feb 04, 2016 9:53 am

    LA City basic CERT training classes begin every odd month (Jan, March, May, July, Sept, Nov) and conclude in the following even month (Feb, April, June, Aug, Oct, Dec).

    We're looking at doing small scale, single skill emphasis drills during the graduation months to give the classes something to attend and practice after they graduate.

    For example, on Feb 27th, 2016, we're hosting a Medical Triage Coaching Drill where participants individually approach scenes made up of 3-5 moulaged victims and a coach. The coaches are field-experienced EMT, Paramedics, or Emergency Room Nurses. The coaches begin asking questions and prompt the participant to verbally work through the triage process and apply appropriate hands-on immediate emergecy life saving techniques. After the first few scenes, the participants will group up and approach as teams.

    What other skills should we plan to emphasize? What ideas for drills do you have? Where do you think you or most people are weak and what do we need to help you strengthen up?

    I would like to see a communications drill and perhaps a light search drill or a size up.

    The next Battalion 2 Community Meeting on May 10th will be about Communications in Battallion 2 and cover how teams will use FRS for tactical communications, GMRS Repeaters for Community and Neighborhood-wide strategic communications, MURS data to relay GPS, and ham radio for communications outside the neighborhood or Battalion.
