Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program

Print

CERT logoThe County of Los Angeles Fire Department is proud to present this training to the public. Following a major disaster, police, fire and medical professionals may not be able to fully meet the demand. People will have to rely on each other to meet the 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 County of Los Angeles Fire Department Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training was developed through FEMA to provide basic fire safety and life saving skills. The course is taught by Maria Grycan, Los Angeles County Community Services Representative.
