Emergency Planning experts predict that residents may be without utilities and basic community emergency services for a week following a major earthquake. CERT training promotes a partnering effort between emergency services and the people they serve. The goal is to train members of neighborhoods and community organizations in basic emergency skills to become better prepared and to assist their families and neighbors following a disaster.

CERT training will include six 3 hour classes, one night per week, over a 6 week period. 

Subjects you will be taught include:
  • Disaster Preparedness and Terrorism
  • Fire Safety
  • Disaster Medical Operations
  • Light Search & Rescue
  • CERT Organization and Disaster Psychology
  • Simulated Disaster Exercise
