Second Saturday Drill:

Saturday, February 8, 2020


Location TBA



The County of San Diego has instituted a regional notification system that will be able to send telephone notifications to residents and businesses within San Diego County impacted by, or in danger of being impacted by, an emergency or disaster. This system, called “AlertSanDiego”, will be used by emergency response personnel to notify those homes and businesses at risk with information on the event and/or actions (such as evacuation, shelter in place, gas leak, missing person, etc.) we are asking them to take. The system utilizes the region’s 9-1-1 database, provided by the local telephone company(ies), and thus is able to contact landline telephones whether listed or unlisted. It is TTY/TDD capable.

What is CERT?

During the first few hours and days after a disaster strikes, emergency services could be overwhelmed, leaving families, neighborhoods and businesses on their own for hours or days.

San Miguel Fire & Rescue personnel train and empower citizens in safe, effective neighborhood Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT). San Miguel CERT instructors teach citizens to take life-saving action to help families, neighbors, businesses and communities get through the first few hours or days when emergency services are overwhelmed.

The CERT program strives to familiarize citizens with the facts about what to expect following a major disaster in their community and to deliver the message about their responsibility for mitigation and preparedness. Through didactic and hands-on sessions they receive training in needed lifesaving skills with emphasis on decision making, rescuer safety, and doing the greatest good for the greatest number.

The CERT program includes eight units:

  • Emergency Preparedness
  • Fire Safety
  • Emergency Medical Operations I
  • Emergency Medical Operations II
  • Light Search and Rescue I
  • Light Search and Rescue II
  • Disaster Psychology/ CERT Organization
  • Disaster Simulation/Exercise
