Tarpstop Donates to C.E.R.T

Tarpstop Donates to C.E.R.T

Recently Tarpstop donated a WNL Product, Practi-TRAINER Essentials Universal AED Trainer. This kit comes with the AED Training module and Training pads for both Adult and Child/Infant training. With one of our very own Brian Peterson apart of the Corps we really thought this was a chance to make an impact on the local community up in Taylor, MI. Taylor CERT is known for being there for first aid needs at local events around the city and having this trainer gives them the opportunity not only to make sure the volunteers are properly trained on life saving response but also affords them the opportunity to invite the community to full service training in CPR and First Aid.

Taylor CERT is part of the local and national Citizens Corps effort to incorporate and utilize volunteers in the community. CERT members are trained in basic response techniques in order to assist local citizens and first responders in disaster or emergency situations.  

The Taylor CERT Program was established in 2012 under the supervision of the Taylor Fire Department and is dispatched by the Fire Chief.  Overseeing the program is CERT Coordinator Blaine Honeycutt. The concept of CERT originated and was designed by Los Angeles Fire Department in the 1980's and was designed to have citizens help citizens during earthquakes and mudslides that plague the local areas.  After the terror attacks of 9-11, then, sitting President, George W. Bush enacted CERT across the country under the direction of FEMA and Homeland Security.
