Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training is a free emergency training program to empower our community to prepare for and overcome the effects of any disaster that can disrupt our daily lives.
Learn basic skills that can mean the difference between being a victim or a survivor in the next emergency.
To receive a Certificate of Completion, you must attend all classes and the hands-on drill. Arrangements can be made to make-up classes.
The final multi-city all-day drill will be held on Saturday, April 28.
Seating is limited, and registration is required.
