Kati Scanlon Joins IIGR as our Fourth Intern

On June 1, 2015, Kati Scanlon of the University of South Florida joined IIGR as our fourth student intern.

During her time at IIGR, Kati will do a research report on the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program, a national program that teaches ordinary Americans the fundamentals of protecting themselves, their families, and their fellow citizens during day-to-day emergencies as well as larger disasters. This includes, for example, fire safety, the proper use of a fire extinguisher, emergency first aid, basic search and rescue, and other information and techniques.

Besides doing her research, Kati also completed a 15-hour CERT training course to make her better prepared for emergencies.

Kati will be with us until August.
