CERT Basic Class Starts Soon

We only have two seats left for the upcoming March and April classes and we need to fill them. Do you know someone who might be interested in CERT Basic class? Send them this post and encourage them to sign up.

While we would love for you to join our CERT organization after training, it is not a requirement for this class. The only requirement, besides the FEMA class, is an interest in knowing what to do in an emergency. Who doesn’t want to have that knowledge?

CERT Basic Classes NOW OPEN

Our CERT Basic classes in March and April are now open. Due to COVID-19 precautions, space is very limited so sign up quickly. The Basic CERT class is approximately 24 hours of instruction in basic disaster skills over 4 days.

CERT Basic Training is designed to prepare you to help yourself and to help others in the event of a catastrophic disaster. Because emergency services personnel will not be able to help everyone immediately, you can make a difference by using your CERT training to save lives and protect property. This training covers basic skills that are important to know in a disaster when emergency services are not available. With training and practice, and by working as a team, you will be able to protect yourself and do the greatest good for the greatest number after a disaster. Medical or EMT experience is not required.

For dates and times including a link to sign up, please visit the training page on our website at

Two, online, FEMA Emergency Management Institute courses must be successfully completed prior to the start of CERT Basic training. These courses are free (note:  you will be required to get a Student ID (SID) which also is free). The courses are listed as 3 hours each in duration but, on the average, students complete them in a little more than half that time. Details can be found at the link above.

We look forward to having you!

Be Prepared. Have a Plan.
