About this event

Description

We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Saturday, October 15, 2022.

Please join us for the next Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Academy! CERT educates people in the community about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area (e.g. earthquakes or fires) and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members are also encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.


There are two required classes that will need to be taken online: Disaster Psychology and Terrorism, info on this training will be provided during the first evening of the Academy.
Introductory class on September 8 will be held at the Community Activities Building, 1400 Roosevelt Ave in Redwood City from 6:30pm-9:30pm. Remaining Thursday classes will beheld at the Red Morton Community Center, 1120 Roosevelt Ave in Redwood City from 6:30pm-9:30pm. The Saturday Class will be from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm and will be held at the Armory,939 Valota Rd in Redwood City. During the Saturday morning session students will have the opportunity to practice the training they received in the classroom, then in the afternoon students will participate in a mock disaster exercise. Participants must complete all classes and Skills Day in order to receive a CERT Certificate of Completion and become a member of the Redwood City and San Carlos CERT Community.
