There are three types of classes offered to assist residents of El Cerrito and Kensington to be self-sufficient in the event of a disaster:
1. CERT Training
Utilizing the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) curriculum, this 20-hour program is designed to assist residents of El Cerrito and Kensington to be self-sufficient in the event of a disaster.
2. CERT Boot Camp
For those citizens who cannot attend the 20-hour Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) curriculum, the Fire Department offers an alternative training. The CERT Boot Camp is designed to provide those participants who cannot commit the required 20 hours for training. This non-certified one-day training will introduce participants to CERT in all program areas in a condensed format.
