CERT-academy-TS

     The City of Poway is recruiting community members interested in serving on Poway’s Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). The 30-hour program is free, held 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays beginning Oct. 28 through Dec. 2 (no class Nov. 25). 

     CERT is a nationwide program that educates individuals about disaster preparedness and provides training in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization and disaster medical operations. San Diego County has more than 1,700 trained CERT volunteers.

     CERT volunteers play a critical role in assisting first responders when personnel and resources are stretched to the limit. Volunteers learn disaster preparedness, fire safety and disaster psychology, as well as CERT’s role in disaster medical operations, light search and rescue, and more.

     Request an application by contacting Susy Turnbull, Poway’s disaster preparedness coordinator, at sturnbull@poway.org or 858-668-4474. Space is limited.
