South Lane County Fire & Rescue would like to welcome 18 adults to our Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) and 8 teens to our Teen CERT!
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area. Community members are trained in basic disaster response skills such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, incident command, and disaster medical operations. Using skills learned in classroom training and drills and exercises, CERT members can assist others after an event and before first responders can arrive on the scene.
If you are interested in joining our CERT team, the next class will begin late 2020.
