Join San Marcos CERT! -Community Emergency Response Team

10 weeks of class now only three full days: February 6, 13, and 20. Sign up w/ Maribel at SM Fire 760-744-1050 x3405. CERT is a proud partner of Citizen Corps and the effort to have everyone in America prepare, train, and volunteer.

The potential for wildfires, earthquakes, transportation accidents, terrorist attacks and other disasters lurks below our everyday awareness.   Many people have become complacent knowing that when we dial 9-1-1 professional help arrives in a mere handful of minutes.  However, experts say when the “big one” hits, law enforcement officers, firefighters, paramedics and hospitals will initially be overwhelmed and will not be able to tend to the hundreds, or even thousands, of injured victims.

To span this gap between need and response, the Department of Homeland Security urges people to train and prepare themselves by enrolling in a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program.  The 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. In the event of a disaster, CERT members can use their training to tend to themselves and their family members, neighbors, or coworkers.
