CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) training is a FEMA training program developed to prepare citizens for disasters and to be able to help others when first responders are overwhelmed. CERT training was developed in Los Angeles and has now become a nationally recognized training program that 2Serve is certified to provide.
A simulation provides an opportunity for trainees to apply the information and skills they have learned.
Moulage is where we use make up on a person so they look like they have injuries. This helps a simulation be much more realistic.
