Saturday, March 30
Crescenta Valley Sheriff   - 5 Day CV CERT Certification

The class fills up fast so register ASAP Details below

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program is an all-risk, all-hazard training. This valuable course is designed to help you protect yourself, your family, your neighbors and your neighborhood in an emergency situation.

CERT is a positive and realistic approach to emergency and disaster situations where citizens may initially be on their own and their actions can make a difference. While people will respond to others in need without the training, one goal of the CERT program is to help them do so effectively and efficiently without placing themselves in unnecessary danger.

In the CERT training, citizens learn to:
• Treat the three medical killers by opening airways, controlling bleeding, and treating for shock
• Provide basic medical aid
• Search for and rescue victims safely
• Collect disaster intelligence to support first responder efforts
• Manage utilities and put out small fires
• Organize themselves and spontaneous volunteers to be effective
