Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Registration
Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)
Citizens are encouraged to attend this free disaster preparedness education and training! Ventura County Fire Department in coordination with FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) provides residents with this valuable training to prepare their families and homes for a disaster, including hazards that may impact the areas 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.
