Fire Department Volunteer Opportunities

Community Emergency Response Team (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. For more information please visit the CERT resource.

Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES)
RACES members register their skills, qualifications and radio equipment capability and donate their time for training and operational readiness in the event they are needed during a disaster. All radio operators are licensed by the Federal Communications Commission. Each RACES member agrees to attend regular meetings and participate in training sessions, donating their time and skills to provide supplemental or emergency communications in the event of a local or widespread disaster. For more information on volunteering, please access the RACES resource within the Fire Department.
