The Los Angeles County Fire Department is proud to present this training to the public.
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is a 21 hour training program that was developed to provide basic training in safety and life saving skills for the general public.
Following a major disaster, police, fire, and medical personnel may not be able to meet the demand. People will have to rely on each other to meet immediate life saving and life sustaining needs.
Developed through FEMA, the L.A. County Fire Department's Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) program provides basic training in safety and life saving skills for the public.
The course curriculum covers the following modules:
Disaster Fire Suppression
Emergency Medical Operations-One victim
Emergency Medical Operations-Triage
Light Search and Rescue Operations

Firefighters will teach residents how to prepare and respond in the event of a major disaster. Learn from the experts how you can take care of your family and neighbors during an earthquake or other emergency.
During each session participants are required to wear closed toed shoes and long pants (for safety purposes). You must attend all sessions to receive your CERT certification. Participants must be 18 years old.
