Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training is designed to educate community members about disaster preparedness and train them in basic disaster response skills such as fire safety, light urban search and rescue, team organization, disaster medical operations and other related safety areas. By taking this course, you will better prepare yourself to stay safe and help others during a disaster. This course does NOT authorize you to respond to any incident on behalf of any response agency.
The CERT course is 24 hours of instruction (8 sessions of three hours). Classes are Thursday evenings from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM and on Saturday the 24th 9:30 – 12:30. To become a certified CERT graduate, there is a minimum required attendance.
