CERT Training Classes
Through funding provided by the State Homeland Security Grant Program, the City of Eastvale has partnered with Jurupa Community Services District to provide Community Emergency Response Team, CERT training.
CERT is a positive and realistic approach to emergency and disaster situations where citizens will be initially on their own. Through training, citizens can manage utilities and put out small fires; treat the three “killers” by opening airways, controlling bleeding, and treating for shock; provide basic medical aid; search for and rescue victims safely; and organize themselves and spontaneous volunteers to be effective.
The 20-hour course covers such topics as Introduction to Disaster Preparedness, First Aid, Light Search and Rescue, Fire Suppression, and Cribbing. Attendance at all three sessions is required. Only those who successfully complete the practical exercise will receive a Certificate of Completion and a FREE CERT kit.
Classes will be October 12-14, 2018, at the Jurupa Community Services District, located on 11201 Harrel St., in Jurupa Valley.
