Emergency Training Program for Walton County Families

Fall sessions start November 13 & November 18

DeFuniak Springs, FL – Walton County residents and teens are invited to sign up for one of two eight-week emergency training sessions offered by Walton County’s Community Emergency Response Team (C.E.R.T.). Residents living near Freeport can start training on November 13 at the Freeport Community Center at 6:00 p.m. Residents in the DeFuniak Springs area may wish to sign up for training on November 18 at Northwest Florida State College, Building 2, Room 214 at 6:00 p.m.

Emergency training is free and will provide citizens with CPR certification, first aid and basic triage as well as basic fire safety. Those who complete the eight-week course will be able to provide assistance and first responder aid to anyone until emergency help arrives. “Minutes matter during a life-threatening emergency,” says Edwin Baltzley, Walton County Emergency Response Division Director. “I’m proud to see our local C.E.R.T. training program leaders working so hard to train so many people, and I hope every family will take full advantage of this free opportunity that could one day save a loved-one’s life.”

To register for a training session or for more information, contact Walton County C.E.R.T. Coordinator, Ofelia Murphy, at 850-892-8065 or e-mail her at eoccert@co.walton.fl.us.
