Self Sufficiency • Emergency Preparedness • Alternative Energy • Off Grid Skills • Food Preservation
Community Resilience • Preparing to Serve
From the teachings of the Elders to the evidence gleaned from modern science, we believe that disruptions to our infrastructure and way of life from natural or manmade disasters are overdue. A paradigm shift is in process. We want to be ready, and we want our children to be ready. We believe it is important to be prepared, not just to survive, but to serve and help others to live.
Much of the educational offerings or support in terms growing food, achieving self reliance, and developing off-grid skills are important in emergency situations. Although we do not offer specific disaster preparation courses, we do offer our free Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training. We encourage everyone to take this free training that is available all over the US.
Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program
Participants in this program will learn about disaster preparedness for hazards that may affect their environment and receive training in basic disaster response skills, which include fire safety, light-duty search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Upon completion of their classroom training and exercises, CERT members will be able to assist others in their neighborhood or workplace after an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help.
CERT members are encouraged to take a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community as well as support emergency response agencies.
