BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) – The Teen Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) from Brunswick County Early College High School will participate in a life-like disaster drill Friday.
EMS supervisors will create a disaster scenario to which the students must respond. CERT members will not know the specifics of the drill before the event.
All students have been trained in the basics of disaster preparedness, including fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.
This is the third year CERT members will participate in the disaster drill. In the past, students have been challenged with tornadoes, collapsed buildings, and missing persons.
The drill will take place Friday on the campus of BCC, 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. Students will meet with EMS after the drill to debrief.
