Until Help Arrives Course Was Great Success

Seth and Chelsea teaching.jpg
On November 28th, CEMA partnered with both Unity of Savannah and The American Red Cross to bring the course "You Are The Help Until Help Arrives." This two hour course teaches Chatham County residents how they can respond and potentially save lives during an emergency event. We had 30 residents attend one of the two the training events held on November 28th!

Those that wish to attend the next course will have the opportunity to learn important skills such as controlling bleeding, how to properly use a tourniquet, how to position an injured person and how to keep you and your family safe during an emergency event. 

All ages are welcome to attend, but parents should be advised that the course does include some graphic content such as images of terrorist events and train derailments. 

CEMA will begin hosting this training monthly beginning in January. If you are interested, please contact Chelsea Sawyer. Or, feel free to call our office 912-201-4500. 

We are also looking for churches or organizations that would like to host a class. If you have at least 10 people that would like to participate, we can bring this course to you! We only ask that you be willing to open your doors to others in the community. If you are intersted in learning more about hosting a training, please contact Chelsea Sawyer. Or, feel free to call our office 912-201-4500.
