    NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Louisiana will receive $313,800 from the U.S.
    Department of Homeland Security to train citizens to be better
    prepared to respond to emergency situations.
    The grant is part of $19 million being made available to expand
    the Community Emergency Response Teams program.
    "Homeland Security has provided more than $4 billion to state
    and local governments this year to support the efforts of first
    responders and help us secure the homeland," Homeland Security
    Secretary Tom Ridge said. "These CERT grants are a great example
    of the use of funding to better prepare America's communities."
    Each CERT member is required to complete 20 hours of training on
    disaster preparedness, basic disaster medical operations, fire
    safety, light search and rescue and other areas. CERT members are
    trained to provide immediate assistance to victims, assist in
    organizing volunteers and provide support for first responders.
    Louisiana received a previous $285,089 CERT grant last December.
