Los Angeles County, in partnership with the City of Signal Hill Police Department, is proud to present Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training to the public. The program was developed to provide basic training in safety and life-saving skills for the general public.
Following a major disaster, police, fire, and medical professionals may not be able to fully meet service demands. People will have to rely on each other to meet immediate life-saving and life-sustaining needs, particularly in isolated neighborhoods that may be cut off from the main roads for a period of time.
The course curriculum covers the following modules:
- CERT organization
- Course review and disaster simulation
- Disaster psychology
- Emergency medical operations (parts one and two)
- Emergency preparedness
- Fire safety
- Light search and rescue operations
- Terrorism and CERT
There is no charge for this training course. For a schedule of upcoming classes, please email Richard Johnson
, EOC Coordinator or call 562-989-7239. Classes are held in the Signal Hill Police Department, located at:
2745 Walnut Avenue,
Signal Hill, CA 90755.
