Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)
29 Mar 2019
Members of our Pasadena staff recently completed the official Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) three-day training offered by the city. CERT is a community-based group of volunteers who have completed FEMA’s sanctioned training course taught by Fire Fighters and First Responders. The training is a comprehensive program detailing ways to assist friends, family, co-workers, and the community in a small- or large-scale disaster. Specific skills that were covered include Disaster Preparedness, Fire Safety, Light Search and Rescue, and Disaster Medical Operations.
