Student Emergency Response Training for youths 10 and up will be June 18-21 in various Decatur locations.
Hours will be 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. daily. A disaster simulation will be June 22.
The goal is for students to learn how they can respond when they are on their own without putting themselves in needless danger, said Dianna Tolliver of the Volunteer Center of Morgan County.
Topics will include putting out small fires, treating life-threatening injuries, providing basic medical aid, search and rescue, disaster psychology, 911 communication, responder roles and opportunities for youth involvement.
Registration deadline is June 8, and seats are limited. Contact Tolliver at 355-8628.
