About CERT Academy
Join us for an interactive and informative class. Learn how to take better care of yourself, your family, your loved ones, and neighbors when a disaster happens. CERT training provides 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 complete, each student will receive a Certificate of Completion.
