How can you help during a large scale disaster?
Local local emergency response resources, police officers, firefighters and emergency medical services can be easily overwhelmed in the face of a major disaster. The Community Emergency Response Team (C.E.R.T.) program provides citizens with basic training in disaster survival and rescue skills to help reduce loss and protect property during the most critical time frame, until emergency responders can arrive.
New C.E.R.T training classes begin in January.
During the interactive C.E.R.T. course, students will receive training in emergency preparedness, fire suppression, medical operations, light search and rescue, disaster psychology, team organization and terrorism. Upon full course completion students will receive a Certificate of Completion.
Classes are free and open to anyone over the age of 18. Classes fill up fast. Register online at https://www.redwoodcity.org/registrationmain.sdi
