Here’s a chance for St. Bernard Parish teen-agers to learn about basic disaster response skills including fire safety, search and rescue, team organization and disaster medical operations. St. Bernard parents looking for summer activities for children, ages 12-19, should consider a free three-day camp teaching basic disaster preparedness being held July 17-19 at Lafreniere Park in Metairie. The St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office will be participating. The event is the Teen Community Emergency Response Team, or CERT, which is similar to the old Civil Defense groups which trained volunteers for community emergencies. CERT and Teen CERT are under the overall umbrella of U.S. Homeland Security.
