Fairfield County is asking residents to join the Community Emergency Response Team.
The county is holding several CERT training sessions later this month.
After completing the training you will have the option to join the response team, but there's no obligation.
The dates are Oct. 15, 17, 22 and 24 from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Oct. 26 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The training is free but you must register first.
