Emergency response course session starts Feb. 21 

CERT training

Learn how to protect yourself, loved ones, the community when disaster strikes

– The North San Luis Obispo County Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) team is offering a course during February and March on how to prepare for, respond to, and recover from local disasters.

During a large-scale emergency or disaster, emergency service personnel may not be able to reach everyone right away. A disaster could strike when parents are at work and children are at school or involved in social activities. Would your family members know what to do?

This class is intended for family members, aged 15 and older. Protect your family, assist your neighbors, and help your community during and after a disaster.
