CERT Basic Training
How to help your community after a disaster

In a disaster, professional emergency responders will be overwhelmed, and people will have to rely on their neighbors for help. If you want to be one of the helpers, the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Basic Training class is for you. It teaches basic emergency response skills, and how to use them safely.

Topics include:

This class meets for seven weekday evenings and one full Saturday (see dates below). On successful completion of the class, you will be invited to join the Sunnyvale CERT Deployment Team, which supports the professional responders in Sunnyvale's Department of Public Safety.

IMPORTANT: Space in this class is limited. Please do not sign up unless you fully expect to attend all of the sessions. This class is open to anyone aged 18 or over, but preference will be given to Sunnyvale residents. High school students under age 18 are welcome if their parent or other responsible adult is also in the class.
