My wife (Vikki) finished her CERT training last night with her final excercise.  The rest of the family turned out for victim duty.  I got to be the “wandering guy” who’s wandering around the scene looking for someone.  Always a challenge to deal with.  I can walk around in circles like nobody’s business, so it was the role for me. :-)

We did the “airplance crashed into a crowd” scenario, so everyone got made up really gross with burns and compound fractures.

And now for the plug...
All this training could be yours for free.  Classes are open to anyone who lives or works in Hillsboro (if you don't, look for a CERT program in your area) and are 3 hours, one night a week for 8 weeks.  You'll even get your very own hard hat, safety goggles and gloves courtesy of the city.  The next class will start in the Fall.  Check out the Hillsboro CERT website for details.  If you'd like to support our program, check out our gear site on CafePress.  Proceeds all go directly to the CERT program.
