Free disaster preparedness training with special invite to veterans

The Westshore Regional Community Emergency Response Team (WSC) is offering free classes on topics such as disaster preparedness, emergency medical considerations, search and rescue procedures, fire suppression, disaster psychology and more. The 20-hour FEMA course begins Saturday, Oct. 5, and is conducted by local safety professionals. The five consecutive Saturday morning classes will be held at St. John Medical Center and the City of Westlake Service Center from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Westshore residents who are over 18 years of age, successfully complete training, and pass a background check are eligible for team membership. 

The Ohio Department of Public Safety and the WSC extend a special invitation to our veterans. Your previous training and expertise is invaluable to your community. Visit for more program and team information.
