Citizens are encouraged to attend this free disaster preparedness education and training! 

Camarillo CERT TRAINING will be held on Tuesday evenings, starting February 4th through March 11th and a final Saturday on March 14th.

Ventura County Fire Department in coordination with FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) provides you with this valuable training to prepare your family and home before a disaster, including hazards that most impact the areas where we live. 

Participants learn basic disaster response skills:

  • Securing home and property for earthquake safety
  • Fire Safety, hands on fire extinguisher practice
  • Light search and rescue
  • Cribbing and lifting
  • Disaster first-aid and triage
  • Team organization 

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. 

The CERT Course consists of 6 evening classes (once a week for 6 weeks) and a final day to review and practice skills learned.

LOCATION: VCFD Regional Training Center in Camarillo.
