Emergency preparedness class offered for churches
At the end of July, New England Pentecostal Ministries in Pelham will be expanding upon just what churches can provide their communities by hosting a free emergency preparedness training course for its clergy, parishioners and citizens.
The office of emergency management tries to involve the whole community when it comes to CERT, according to Martuscello.
“Nashua Office of Emergency Management has done other disaster preparedness courses for our faith-based organizations which have been a huge success,” she said. “Many of the organizations have had their members come through our CERT course.”
“The biggest benefit to taking the course is learning how you and your family can be prepared for the everyday emergency,” said Martuscello. “We cover topics such has how to shut off your utilities, and everyone gets the opportunity to use a fire extinguisher. We teach people how to make and emergency kit and what you can do to help your neighbors.”
Anyone interested in signing up for the program can visit goo.gl/hbPWti or Contact the CERT team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
