TO REPORT AN EMERGENCY: DIAL 9-1-1

CERT

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training is a National program designed to prepare Clackamas Fire District #1 residents to help themselves, their families and neighbors, in the event of a disaster. Trained instructors guide participants through a 25-hour FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) course that covers basic skills that are important to know in a disaster when emergency services are not available.

CERT provides training in earthquake awareness, disaster fire suppression techniques, disaster medical operations, first aid/triage, light search and rescue as well as team organization and management. Initial CERT training concludes with a disaster simulation and comprehensive course review. CERT training events are taught by trained emergency service personnel, including firefighters and emergency medical services personnel, with an emphasis on hands-on practice.
