Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

The City of Commerce & County of Los Angeles Fire Department are proud to present this training to the public. Following a major disaster, police, fire and medical professionals may not be able to fully meet the demand. People will have to rely on each other to meet the immediate life saving and life sustaining needs, particularly in isolated neighborhoods that may be cut off from the main roads for a period of time.

The County of Los Angeles Fire Department’s Community Emergency Response Team (C.E.R.T.) program was developed to provide basic training in safety and life saving skills for the general public.

The course curriculum covers the following:
Module 1     Disaster Preparedness
Module 2     Disaster Fire Suppression
Module 3     Disaster Medical Operations I
Module 4     Disaster Medical Operations 2
Module 5     Light Search & Rescue
Module 6     Disaster Psychology, Organization & Terrorism
Module 7     Disaster Simulation and Exercise
