Organization: 
Arlington County Department of Public Safety Communications and Emergency Management
Address:

Instructors of the Arlington Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) will teach us how to maintain situational awareness, identify key life threats, stop the bleeding, move and position the injured, and provide psychological support to the wounded.

Learn skills to respond to traumatic injuries from a car collision, household injury, or events like an active shooting.

Thursday, December 16 at 6:30 PM to 8PM. Get ready to gain new skills or reinforce existing ones to respond to life-threatening emergencies to help save lives until first responders arrive.

The event will last an hour and a half, and will be held indoors.

Important: In place of the classroom part, we have posted three video recordings of the online UHA Training content, which may be watched at times convenient to you, and preferably before the hands-on practice on Thursday (strongly recommended).

You may access these videos here: arlingtonva.us/Government/Programs/Emergency/UHA-by-ArlCERT
