Training for Disaster Preparedness Available in October

The City of Goleta is offering training to help you become better prepared in a disaster. Sign up for our Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Training on Saturdays this October.

The CERT Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.

Goleta CERT Training Class:

  • October 6, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
  • October 13, 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
  • October 27, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
