Student Materials from Previous Classes

The purpose of Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) is to train people living in the community to take care of themselves, their families and their neighbors in the event of a disaster. The Federal Emergency Management Agency began promoting nationwide use of the CERT concept in 1994. Since then, hundreds of CERT programs have been established in communities across the country.

After a large scale disaster like 9/11 or the Loma Prieta earthquake, emergency services personnel will not be able to reach everyone in need right away. By attending CERT training classes, you will learn the skills to help save lives and protect property.

Classes are taught by Fire District personnel in basic fire suppression, utility control, light search and rescue and disaster medical. Other topics include disaster psychology and disaster incident management. The training involves six evening sessions and one Saturday session for a total of 22 hours. This training consists of interactive training, lectures and concludes with a hands on training exercise.

Classes are open to residents of the Woodside Fire Protection District. Pre-registration is required and spaces are limited. Spaces will only be held once a deposit check for $25 has been submitted along with: Name, address, phone, number and email address.
