The Greater Green Valley Community Emergency Response Team (GGV CERT) will begin its first basic training course of the year on Wednesday, March 8 at the Green Valley Fire District Headquarters, 1285 W. Camino Encanto. This 20-hour course will cover disaster preparedness, terrorism, disaster medical operations, team planning, psychological reaction to disasters and many more topics.
