CRESWELL – When a disaster happens in the area, the more trained hands on deck the better. That's why South Lane County Fire & Rescue offers Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training.

For the past three years, SLCF&R has offered a teenage CERT program for 14- to 20-year-olds, and added a program for adults this year.

Nicole Wood, 17, was one of those teens who participated; she did the program in the fall of 2017. Even though she doesn't want to be a paramedic or firefighter, she wanted to participate because she thought these would be good skills to have in an emergency.
