Tom Horton will describe how when growing up on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, he experienced the best of the Chesapeake. His adult life has been devoted to chronicling the great estuary’s degradation that began in the 1970s, and the major efforts to reverse this that began in the 1980s.

Horton covered the environment for the Baltimore Sun from 1972 through 2006. He continues to write a column for the monthly Bay Journal and teaches environmental studies and nature writing at Salisbury University.

These seminars are occasionally rescheduled or postponed on short notice. Prospective attendees are urged to check the Seminar’s website (www.SciPhi.org) shortly before a scheduled date.

Community Emergency Response Team Training Program @ Eastern Shore Regional Fire Training Center
Feb 1 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

A Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training program is available to Eastern Shore residents beginning Tuesday, February 1, 2018. The CERT training program prepares citizens and communities to take a more active role in emergency preparedness. CERT participants are trained and maintained as part of a neighborhood or workplace response team. CERT training can give you the basic skills needed immediately following a major disaster, when emergency services may not be available and when residents may have to rely on each other for life-saving and life-sustaining needs.

Citizens will learn how to provide help for their family and neighbors in emergency situations — whether caused by terrorism, technological disasters or severe weather. Participants will learn about disaster preparedness and response, basic fire safety, first aid, search and rescue techniques, and terrorism preparedness.  Students will have chances to win door prizes and at the conclusion of the class, all students will receive a backpack filled with emergency supplies.

The 20.5 hour program consists of both lecture and practical exercises.  The class will be held on Thursday evenings February 1st, February 8th, February 15th, and Tuesday, February 27th from 6 PM until 10 PM and on Thursday, March 1st from 5:30 PM until 10 PM.  Participants must attend all sessions to receive credit. All classes will be held at the Eastern Shore Regional Fire Training Center, 28598 Beacon Road in Melfa, Virginia.

Class size is limited to 30 people.  Minimum class size is 10 people.  If fewer than 10 people are registered, the class may be cancelled.  This course is free of charge. Register by emailing J.J. Justis at JJ.Justis@vdh.virginia.gov or call (757) 302-4267.

The CERT program is funded through a grant administered by the Virginia Department of Emergency Management.
