WHY TAKE THE CERT TRAINING?
Well, it’s like paying for car insurance.
You might never need it, in fact you hope you won’t.
But if the occasion arises, having the CERT training,
just like having car insurance, means you’re as ready as you can be
to help yourself, your family and your neighborhood in an emergency situation.
You will receive 17-1/2 hours of initial training by LAFD personnel.
It is provided free of charge within the city of Los Angeles to anyone 18 or over.
If you miss a session, you can make it up at another CERT class.
CERT members are trained in basic disaster response skills such as fire safety,
light search and rescue, team organization and disaster medical operations.
You will learn how to prepare for emergencies, what supplies you should have NOW in your house,
how much food and water, but most importantly,
how to protect your family (and your neighbors) in an emergency!
It is important to realize that when a major disaster occurs,
the fire department, para- medics, police…WILL NOT COME!
They will be deployed FIRST to major incidents such as collapsed buildings.
That is why you constantly hear that you MUST be prepared
to take care of yourself. In the CERT course they say…
“The Greatest Good for the Greatest Number of People”
When you are trained, you are far more equipped to deal with your circumstances without needing aid from outside sources.
