Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training is a free resource that can help create a neighborhood preparedness network in your community.  Taught by local fire and law enforcement agencies, this 20-hour FEMA approved training curriculum provides residents with information on basic disaster response skills such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. CERT members are encouraged to support first responders by becoming leaders in emergency preparedness in their community.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department posts dates and locations for CERT trainings that they offer online. Click on the “Register for a Class” button to view their trainings, or call (888) CERT-939. You can also contact your neighborhood law enforcement agency or fire station to see when they are offering CERT training in your community.
