Our Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) class is scheduled for Thursday Oct 24th & Friday Oct 25th (8am-4 pm) and Saturday Oct 26th (8 am-12 pm). This is a popular training course where youth learn search and rescue techniques, how to use a fire extinguisher, triage and basic first aid.
The course culminates in a mini disaster exercise where the youth will actually participate in the drill. This is great training for both Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. Boy Scouts will get a head start on their emergency preparedness merit badge, along with the Emergency BSA award.
There is no charge to attend, but pre-registration is necessary.
The class is only open to Racine County residents.

The plan is to have a member of the Marine Corps League present Racine and Kenosha Eagle Scouts a certificate as part of their Court of Honor. James Thompson, Vice Commandant of The Agerholm-Gross, Marine Corps League Detachment 346, Racine, WI is the contact for Eagle Scout recognition.
Please share Jim’s email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with Eagle Scout candidates, unit leaders and unit advancement chairpersons.
Beginning October 1, 2013, the AEF will be video streaming a wild Bald Eagle nest live from Northeast Florida. The stars of this new virtual reality show are “Romeo” and “Juliet” – a pair of Bald Eagles that have been occupants of their huge nest for many years.
For the past 5 years, careful and meticulous documentation has been made regarding behaviors of this adult eagle pair, including the exact dates they return to the nest from their off-season travels, nest preparation, mating, egg laying, incubation, hatching, and the fledging of the eaglets.
Two high-definition video cameras have been installed to provide the best “up close and personal” viewing for the people who visit our website… without ever once disturbing the daily activities of the eagles or their babies. One camera is in the actual nesting tree, and can be zoomed in for intimate details. The other camera was installed in another tree (about 110 feet from the nest tree) to give a wide angle view of the entire nest tree canopy, allowing viewers to see the adult eagles fly in and out of the nest, the youngsters “wingerizing” and taking their first flights, and attempting their initial landings.
The video cam channels, along with a “Chat” feature, can be accessed by following the links from WWW.EAGLES.ORG
