The original deadline was June 30; however, it has been extended. I received the following email from an Everest student today:
Be Ready Camp is a five day training retreat, for sixth graders. Be Ready Camp is September 17th-22nd at the Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville. This camp provides an opportunity for sixth graders across Alabama to become Youth Preparedness Delegates, receive a commendation from Governor Robert Bentley, and carry the message of preparedness and safety to their schools, communities, and families. Be Ready Camp utilizes a modified Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training as its foundation and broadened to include additional lessons. Be Ready Camp curriculum includes: emergency preparedness, introduction to survival and first aid, developing an emergency kit, creating a family disaster plan, water survival, light search and rescue, disaster psychology, triage, career exploration, and terrorism awareness. The camp concludes with a mock disaster, where the youth perform victim search and rescue alongside professional first responders in a realistic setting. Students are tasked with bringing the message of preparedness and what they have learned back to their families and their communities. Be Ready Camp is free to participants who are selected. It is the responsibility of the participant’s parent/guardian to provide transportation to and from Huntsville, Alabama.
