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). CERT San Miguel 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:
