Ready Ann Arbor training update (9/4/2020) - We are in the process of reorganizing this program for spring or summer 2021 (dates TBD). Look for an announcement in early 2021.
The Ann Arbor Police and Fire departments have launched a new community preparedness program for residents. Modeled after the Department of Homeland Security's Ready campaign, Ready Ann Arbor will aim to educate and empower the public to prepare for, respond to and mitigate emergencies, including natural and manmade disasters, while promoting preparedness through public involvement.
The two-day training takes place over two Saturdays. The topics covered during this initial training include crime prevention, hands-only CPR, personal safety, stop the bleed, active shooter training, home fire safety, covering resources in community, and fire extinguishers training.
Ready Ann Arbor Participants Must:
Be an Ann Arbor resident.
Be at least 18 years old.
Complete and submit the application.
Attend all classes to receive completion certificate.
