The City of Humble Office of Emergency Management will be hosting C.E.R.T. training beginning Sept. 17 and ending Nov 5.
CERT stands for Community Emergency Response Team. CERT is about readiness, people helping people, rescuer safety, and the CERT mantra: Do the greatest good for the greatest number. CERT is a positive and realistic approach to emergency situations where citizens initially will be on their own and their actions can make a difference. Citizens can be trained to manage utilities and put out small fires; treat the three killers by opening airways, controlling bleeding, and treating for shock; provide basic medical aid; search for and rescue victims safely; and organize themselves and spontaneous volunteers to be effective.
Emergency responders are quickly over whelmed during an emergency. CERT will train the average citizen to take care of themselves, families and neighbors until help can arrive.

Village Builders’ new NextGen model now open in Oakhurst at Kingwood will offer home shoppers a first-hand look at the builder’s innovative “home within a home” concept as well as one of its many innovative new floor plans now offered in the Kingwood master-planned community.
The appealing elevation of the model and all NextGen homes resemble the classic designs for which Village Builders is known, but inside, these homes offer something very different and innovative.
