AUBURN, Kan (WIBW)--A new class of do-gooders is now officially prepared should the need strike.
The Shawnee County Department Of Emergency Management announced members of the Community Emergency Response Team class are ready to take care of themselves and their communities.

They also learned how to recognize, report and respond to an emergency before professional first responders arrive.
