Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Training is Coming to Rosemead

The City of Rosemead Public Safety Department, in partnership with the Los Angeles County Fire Department, is now accepting applications for the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training program. This training course will be held on three (3) consecutive Saturdays: May 6th, 13th, and 20th, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Rosemead Public Safety Center, located at 8301 Garvey Avenue.

The CERT program educates participants about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact specific neighborhoods and trains residents in basic disaster response skills. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT graduates can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT graduates also are encouraged to take a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.

The CERT training will be taught by the Los Angeles County Fire Department and the courses are a combination of classroom sessions and hands-on training in:

  • Disaster Preparedness
  • Fire Safety & Utility Controls
  • Disaster Medical Operations – Part 1
  • Disaster Medical Operations – Part 2
  • Light Search and Rescue
  • CERT Organization
  • Disaster Psychology
  • Terrorism and CERT
  • Course Review, Final Exam and Disaster Simulation

To become a CERT graduate, participants must complete the 24 hours of Mandatory CERT training. The CERT training program is open to all Los Angeles County residents. Class space is limited, and registration is required. Click HERE for the application.
