    About CERT

    Anaheim CERT promotes the ongoing training and participation of our volunteer force by providing many educational opportunities to better prepare for and respond to disasters. CERT Certified volunteers with the City of Anaheim fall under three different levels of training to prepare volunteers to respond in a variety of areas during a disaster situation.

    Disasters can happen at any time in Anaheim. We experience earthquakes, fires and flooding. Are you prepared to handle an emergency that is large in scale?

    Individuals, neighborhoods, businesses and schools may be on their own for 72 hours or more. CERT training will provide you with the necessary and practical skills to help yourself, your family and your neighborhood until trained emergency personnel arrive. CERT training is a course approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency(FEMA), and provides critical skills in emergency preparedness and response. As a member of a CERT team, you can respond to disasters and participate in drills and exercises.

     

    CERT Training Classes

    The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.

    Class Schedule:

    Anaheim Fire & Rescue is hosting two classes this spring for you to become better prepared for an earthquake or other disaster. These classes are open to any residents of California and will be held at the North Net Fire Training Center in Anaheim. There will be a $25 class fee for course materials payable on the first day of class. Current high school students with residency in California are exempt from the class fee.

    2014 CERT Spring 1 Class will be held on Mondays, Wednesday, and Fridays from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm. Class starts on Monday April 28 and will end on Wednesday May 14. There will not be a class held on Monday, May 5. Click HERE for more info and details on how to register.

    2014 CERT Spring 2 Class will be held on every other Saturday from 9:00 AM to 6:00 pm on May 31, June 14 and June 28. Click HERE for more info and details on how to register.
