Why Do We Need CERT?

After several large scale disasters like 9/11 and the Loma Prieta earthquake, there was a realization that not all emergency services personnel will be able to reach everyone right away. By attending CERT training classes, you will learn the skills to help save lives and protect property.

How Does CERT help in the Community?

Once a disaster strikes, CERT team members are encouraged to check on their own families and home first. CERT members then assemble at a pre-designated area and break up into teams. These teams fan out into the neighborhood and look for people to rescue and treat, fires to put out and utilities to shutoff. CERT team members work in teams of 3, as safety is the most important issue when working in a disaster zone. Team members are taught to not enter collapsed buildings or other dangerous environments.

CERT Training

CERT members are taught by Foster City Fire Department personnel in basic fire suppression, utility control, light search and rescue and disaster medical. Other topics include disaster psychology and disaster incident management. The training involves seven evening sessions and one Saturday session for a total of 25 hours. This training consists of interactive training, lectures and concludes with a hands-on training exercise.

Who Can Be A CERT Member?

Foster City residents who are at least 16 years of age or older can participate. No matter where you live, no matter who you are, we can all have a role in disaster preparedness. All classes will be held at the Foster City Fire Department, 1040 E. Hillsdale Blvd.
