It’s the Final Leg of Training for NYC CERT’s Cycle 15 Recruits

New recruits

NEW CERT recruits prepare for their final exercise, a nighttime rescue operation, at a high school in Chelsea.

On a chilly November night last week, half of the NYC CERT Cycle 15 graduating class performed their final exercise, a post-disaster rescue operation. First responder volunteers and OEM leaders set the stage with CERT team members volunteering as victims. The scenario will be recreated on December 6 when the remaining half of the graduating class are put through their paces.

The Cycle 15 graduation ceremony will take place on January 13, 2011, at 6:00 p.m., at the Fiorello LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, 100 Amsterdam Avenue, at W. 65 Street, New York, NY 10023.
