The Coastside Fire District/Cal Fire in conjunction with the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services is offering a “Community Emergency Response Team” (CERT) class in September.
Following a major disaster, your first responders who provide fire and medical services will not be able to meet the demand for these services. Factors such as number of victims, communication failures, and road blockages will prevent people from accessing emergency services they have come to expect at a moment’s notice through 911. People will have to rely on each other for help in order to meet their immediate life saving and life sustaining needs.
The CERT course will be delivered at the headquarters fire station at 1191 Main Street in Half Moon Bay. The CERT training sessions for community groups is delivered over a 3-week period.
