Warrenville Emergency Readiness Training
About the Program
What will you do when a disaster strikes? Warrenville Emergency Readiness Training (ERT) can help answer that question. ERT stresses the importance of helping yourself, your family, and your neighbors immediately after a disaster strikes.

During disaster situations, damaged roads and disrupted communication systems may restrict the ability of first responders to respond to all affected areas. During the initial period immediately following a disaster, individuals, households, and neighborhoods may need to rely on their own resources for food, water, first aid, and shelter.

ERT emphasizes the importance of helping the surrounding community in a safe and responsible manner. Training is provided in disaster preparedness, fire safety, basic disaster first aid, light search and rescue, organizing neighbors,and other important topics.

ERT Classes
ERT classes are taught by trained emergency service personnel, including firefighters and emergency medical personnel. The program consist of approximately eight hours of hands-on training covering topics such as:
  • Basic Disaster First Aid
  • Disaster Preparedness
  • Fire Safety
  • Light Search and Rescue
  • Organizing Neighbors
  • Special Needs Populations

The program is designed to help you make a difference by using training to save lives, protect property, and help the greatest number of people in the time immediately following a disaster. Throughout the class, emphasis is placed on helping, while staying within the limits of training and abilities, and acting safely and responsibly.

Classes are dependent upon a minimum of eight persons, so gather your family, neighbors, co-workers, and friends, and will be held once a week for four weeks. Classes typically take place at the Warrenville Public Works Facility, 3S346 Mignin Drive, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Waivers of liability must be signed by all participants. To participate, contact the EMA  coordinator at (630) 393-2131.
