City of San Marcos, CA: Fire department seeks CERT students

The San Marcos Fire Department urges residents to train and prepare themselves for emergency situations by enrolling in a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program. This program educates people about disaster preparedness and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, and disaster medical operations.

Using their training, CERT members can tend to themselves, their families and their neighborhoods in the event of a disaster. The next CERT class is scheduled to start on Saturday, September 12, 2009 and will run for eight consecutive Saturdays.

For enrollment information, please call (760) 744-1050, extension 3405.
