    Budd Wiener Park, Monterey Hills located on Via Marisol between Via Colina and Via Arbolada (exit Via Marisol from the 110 freeway, east on Via Marisol up to the top of Monterey Hills)

    Medical Triage is the hardest part of the CERT training. It takes up 2 of the 7 class sessions. Without hands-on experience, medical is one of the quickest skills graduates lose. It is also the hardest to master for those without previous medical experience.

    We plan to have working or field-experienced EMTs and Paramedics here to do one-on-one coaching with CERT members as they approach scenes made up of 3-5 victims in moulage.

    The coaches will prompt each CERT member to explain their observations and thought process and to walk through the scene size up and steps he or she will take to triage. This will include triage tagging as well as any immediate steps that should be taken to preserve life.
