Sign up now for CERT classes in Brea!
A new series of classes is set to begin on October 10 for the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). Adults willing to commit to this nationally recognized citizen assistance program can register now. Additional information and the enrollment form can be found online at www.cityofbrea.net.
CERT training is provided using a 20-hour curriculum approved by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. CERT 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. Using the training learned in the classroom and during practical exercises, CERT members can then assist others in their neighborhood or workplace immediately following an event when professional emergency responders are not immediately available to help.
