A couple weeks ago when I was searching for fun, free, and frugal things to do, I came across a website for CERT training (Community Emergency Response Team training). Of course, I signed up. It was free and today, with our first training, I found out it was fun (we got to put out fires today...literally!) and it is a frugal way to get some free emergency equipment (we will each get a backpack full of emergency gear--hardhat, gloves, flashlight, etc. next weekend when we "graduate" from the class). This is a great way to learn how to become better prepared for an emergency, meet new people, learn how your community is preparing for an emergency, and pick up some useful skills. Best of all, it is free!
