The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)
Ventura County Firefighters educate people how to prepare themselves and their families for a disaster, including hazards that may impact the area where we live. Participants learn basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster first aid and triage.
After the training, CERT members first secure their own home and family, and then may assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members are encouraged to support local emergency response by taking an active role in emergency preparedness projects in their own homes and in the community.
Ventura County Fire Department in coordination with FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) provides residents with this free training. More information about the Ventura County CERT program can be found at this website: http://vcfd.org/CERT. The CERT Calendar is Here
