Class Schedule and Additional Details Coming Soon!
Join us for an interactive and informative class and learn how to take better care of yourself, your family, your loved ones, and neighbors when a disaster happens. CERT training provides our community members with information on disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact our area. CERT educates students in basic disaster survival and rescue skills, to help reduce loss and protect property during the most critical time-frame until emergency responders can arrive. During this course, students will receive training in: disaster preparedness, fire safety, disaster medical operations, triage, light search and rescue, team organization, disaster psychology, terrorism, and the incident command system. Upon completion of the program, CERT students will participate in a drill that will put all of their new skills to work, once completed, each student will receive a Certificate of Completion.

Complete the CERT Online Course "Introduction to Community Emergency Response Teams" (IS-317)
Take the free online independent study course at the link below, directed to the FEMA Emergency Management Institute, where you will create a free account and upon completing the course, you will receive a certificate from FEMA. "Introduction to Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT)," IS-317, is an independent study course that serves as an introduction to CERT for those interested in completing the basic CERT training or as a refresher for current team members. The course includes six modules: CERT Basics, Fire Safety, Hazardous Material and Terrorist Incidents, Disaster Medical Operations, and Search and Rescue, and Course Summary. While IS-317 is useful as a primer or refresher for CERT training, it is not equivalent to, and cannot be used in place of, the classroom delivery of the CERT Basic Training. To become a CERT volunteer, one must complete the classroom training offered by a local government agency such as the emergency management agency, fire or police department.
