CITY OF MAITLAND STAGES MOCK DISASTER
Maitland, FL. --(October 12, 2000)-- The City of Maitland’s Fire Department will stage its Mock Disaster session of the CERT Training course on October 25, 2000 at 6:45 p.m.   The event will take place at the Germaine Marvel Building located on Packwood Avenue in Maitland directly across from the Maitland Art Center.    

The course, which covers preliminary disaster preparedness, is highlighted by the “hands on” “real-life” mock disaster.  During this staged disaster participants must use the CPR, first aid, triage, small tools, and fire extinguisher training learned to rescue some 25 artistically made-up victims, combat a contained fire, while handling several flash bang incidents.  The purpose of this course is to teach residents how to handle a crisis situation until the fire department and emergency response team can get to the scene.         

“This mock disaster allows residents the opportunity to become empowered and handle disaster situations within their families and their communities,” commented Maitland Fire Chief Dan Hardester.  “We are extremely proud to be able to offer this ‘free of charge’ life-saving opportunity to our residents,” continued Hardester.
 
For more information about the mock disaster please call 407-539-6227.
