The ALERT Application is where it all begins. Filling out your application for acceptance into Basic Training is the first step towards becoming an ALERT Responder. The completed application must be mailed to ALERT where the Basic Training Officers will review it for acceptance. Once approved, your official confirmation packet will be sent to you.
Several of the ALERT standards need to be understood prior to acceptance into Basic Training. This form needs to be signed and submitted with your application.
In accordance with training standards, a Sports Physical from a physician is required to be turned in within 60 days of the start of Basic Training.
Items on the Basic Training Packing List must be purchased and brought with recruits to Basic Training. Many of these items may be purchased at reduced prices through the ALERT Store. All items are required, regardless of the season.
Items on the Basic Training Issued Items list will be issued to recruits and are included in the Basic Training Uniform Fee. The clothing items form the basis of the uniforms needed for all phases of ALERT training.
