TEXSAR CERT Instructors Teach 2012 City of Austin DHS Summer Class

On Saturday June 23, 2012 two TEXSAR Master CERT Instructors taught a Search and Rescue class for the 2012 City of Austin Department of Homeland Security’s summer class. The class was well attended and covered CERT actions during responses to neighborhood based disasters. CERT members are trained to assist their neighbors and communities during the initial response to area disasters and incidents. Mackenzie Kelly and Greg Pyles are the only certified CERT Master Instructors in the Capital Area Council of Governments Region. TEXSAR also has three other certified CERT instructors that support the training in our Region.
