Community Emergency Response Training Available

CERT Training

Next session begins October 20

PASO ROBLES, CA – In the event of a large-scale disaster, such as a wildfire, earthquake, or flood, the fire department, law enforcement, and emergency medical services will immediately respond.  However, it is likely that they will be overwhelmed by the number of calls, and if your home is threatened, or a family member injured, it may be hours before help will arrive.  Would you know what to do?

The North San Luis Obispo County Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) program is offering the CERT Basic Training class which teaches you basic disaster response skills so you can safely help yourself and those around you.  You will learn how to prepare for disasters, about the CERT organization, basic first aid, the psychology of disaster, how to extinguish small fires, procedures to safely and properly conduct structure search and rescue, and about terrorism and hazardous materials.

Individuals who have completed CERT training have been involved in flood and tsunami watches, searches for missing persons, traffic and crowd management, emergency radio communications, wildfire fuel reduction programs, and disaster recovery efforts.

This class meets at Paso Robles Public Safety Center, 900 Park Street, Paso Robles, California.  It consists of classroom sessions on four consecutive Wednesday evenings from 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm beginning October 20, 2021 through November 10, 2021, plus a practical skills day on Saturday, November 13, 2021 from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm.  Attendance at all sessions is required to complete the course.

You may register for this class by going to www.northslocountycert.org  and clicking on the Register at Eventbrite button.  After you register, you will receive an email containing additional instructions for the class.  

Take this course, and learn how to prepare for, and protect yourself, your loved ones, and your community when disaster strikes.
