Teen Cert

Last week, deputies from the Jefferson Davis Parish Sheriff’s Office took 14 area youth chosen from around the parish, to attend a special training camp known as Teen CERT.  Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, is a national program of volunteers trained in disaster preparedness and emergency response.  Volunteers come from all ages and all walks of life.  Teen CERT training teaches our youth about the potential disasters that could affect our area and how to safely and responsibly respond to them.  Through Teen CERT, our youth can serve our community and help take care of our schools and homes.

Overall, it takes about 20 hours to complete the CERT Training, but the critical skills they learn will last a lifetime.  During the trainings they learned to: extinguish small fires, conduct light search and rescue, assist those who are injured, set up medical treatment areas, assist emergency responders, identify and anticipate hazards, reduce fire hazards in the home and workplace, and help reduce survivor stress.

Although the kids learned a lot, it wasn’t all business.  There were plenty of other activities for them to enjoy.  There were talent shows and a game of Fear Factor.  A dance was held every night for the campers to socialize and meet the other 100+ kids from around the state.  They had chances to swim, play volleyball, and play basketball.  Our basketball team even won 1st place at the camp.  You will find pictures from the week on our Facebook page.
