Due to the amazing response to our March 2018 CERT Academy, we have scheduled our next CERT Academy for August 17 &18 and 24 & 25 at the Los Alamitos Joint Forces Base. This Academy class will fill up quickly, so get your application in as soon as possible.
Our CERT Academy is a golden opportunity for you to prepare yourself and family for an emergency event and find out a little bit more about CERT in your neighborhood.
More About the Academy
The CERT Academy covers a set of FEMA based personal safety and disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT Academy graduates are better able to assist themselves, their family, neighborhood or workplace following an event when first responders (paramedics, fire, police) are not immediately available to help.
Did you know….
In a wide spread emergency event like an earthquake, it could be 3 to 7 DAYS before any emergency responders are available to reach the neighborhoods and businesses in Western Orange County.
This is why attending the CERT basic training is so important for you – for the safety/survival of your family, if no other reason. Please make the time and take this course. Plus, you may even have some fun while you learn.
There is no charge for the Academy and is open to anyone 18 years or older; 16+ with parent or guardian permission; 14+ with parent or guardian participation.
