What is CERT?

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) members prepare, organize and work together as a team to provide essential services to their community during and after a disaster.

Each City has its own organized CERT program. CERTs strengthen neighborhood resiliency and play a vital role in their City’s disaster response efforts.

CERT Academy Training

Skills taught include organizing resources, medical operations, basic search & rescue, hazardous materials, terrorism awareness, how to use a fire extinguisher and damage assessment.

Participant Commitment

Participants must attend all in-person and online classes, including participation in the final skills day to receive a CERT course completion certificate.

Classes include both in-person and online evening classes, with a final in-person Saturday skills session and graduation ceremony. The fee of $35 includes basic safety equipment.

Register for the CERT Academy Training 2024.

For more information, please contact the coordinator, Gracie Hernandez, Sr. CERT Specialist, by Phone: (408) 341-4425 or by Email: CERT@sccfd.org2024 Community Emergency Response Team Academy Flyer_Page_1
