CERT Flood Response in Paso Robles

CERT sandbagging

PASO ROBLES, CA –  Members of the North San Luis Obispo County Community Emergency Response Team, most often simply referred to as CERT, responded to assist the city of Paso Robles during the January winter storm.  CERT team members were available to assist in sandbagging, traffic management, and logistical support of other city functions.

 CERT is a national program sponsored locally by Paso Robles Fire and Emergency Services with standardized training provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency.   There are approximately 2,400 sponsored CERT programs across the country with more than 600,000 trained CERT volunteers.

 Each local volunteer had completed CERT Basic Training, a 20-hour course in which they receive training in emergency management fundamentals, basic first aid, fire extinguisher use, search and rescue techniques, hazardous materials, and disaster psychology.  Most of the volunteers had also attended supplemental classes in flood response, traffic and crowd management, and emergency radio communications.

 The North San Luis Obispo County CERT program is offering their next CERT Basic Training class at the Paso Robles Public Safety Center, 900 Park Street in downtown Paso Robles.   The class will meet on February 21st, 23rd, 28th, and March 2nd from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm, and March 4th from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm.  There is no cost for students attending this class.

 For online registration, go to, or you may email, and indicate that you would like to register for the CERT Basic Training class.  Please be sure to provide a telephone number when registering by email.  If you have any questions, you may call John Spooner, the Program Manager, at 805 588-2172.
