Upcoming Trainings:
Leading Medical Response Teams
Wednesday, September 16th, 7pm-9pm Pacific Time
Register on Eventbrite:
CERT Medical Response Teams will need to respond after a disaster to provide basic and life-saving first-aid until professional responders can arrive.
What you do in the hours following a disaster will save lives.
  • But what does a Medical Response Team do?
  • What are the core components and roles?
  • Can you be a member of a team but not have first-aid training?
  • What does the role of Team Leader do and should I be one?
Learn how to put together an efficient CERT Medical Response Team and how that team should respond when doing initial triage and treatment at the tarp.
This meeting will be hosted on Microsoft Teams. You must register on this Eventbrite and to be sent the link to join the Microsoft Teams.
Registration ends 15 minutes before the training begins.

About this Event

If you haven’t registered for one of our Radios Trainings yet, when you register here, we will send you an invite to sign up as a guest to our Microsoft Teams Radio Training Room. You must do this to get access to the chat and channels we will be using.

We will email you an invite to login with or register a Microsoft account (you can use your normal email) and once you do you’ll be able to use all the features we will be utilizing in the training.

If you have already registered for a previous training and have a Microsoft account you used before, login with that account at https://teams.microsoft.com (but only if you’ve already registered).

 

Two-way radio communication is a key part of our disaster preparedness and response plan.

To be able to talk to someone blocks or even miles away in real time when power is out and cellphones don’t work will save time, limit the need for runners to be sent blocks away, and possibly even lives.

It sounds simple: Push to talk, Release to listen.

But when it comes down to it, who are you talking to and what do you say?

This radio training will simulate passing radio traffic between teams in the field and the CERT Staging Area handling a Community Emergency Response Team response during a disaster.

We will utilize the LAFD CERT Zello Work Network to emulate a two-way radio on your smartphone.

This is a closed network where we create an account for you. You cannot use your personal account.

Please sign up at https://forms.gle/NTN95SiXofKA4Vjc6 to request a LAFD CERT Zello Account.

We will begin at 7:30pm on the 4th Wednesday, of each month, using Microsoft Teams as a virtual classroom and review basic radio protocol and how to compose and send a radio message. This portion of the training is open to everyone.

At approximately 8:00pm we will break into groups with facilitators and your facilitator will give you a scenario verbally. You will need to take notes and compose a message to report back to the CERT Staging Area using the Zello app Push to Talk Radio.

 

You must have the Zello app installed on your phone AND an LAFDCERT Zello Account created for you to participate in this portion of the training. Please make sure you are logged in and can see our other accounts and channels before Wednesday. Don’t try to sign up last minute.
