Join Mill Valley's Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) and work alongside emergency personnel to help your community during an emergency. To qualify, take Marin County's 18-hour CERT training, given monthly in alternating cities in Marin.
In a large scale disaster, both self-reliance and the use of volunteers under professional assistance will be necessary. With this in mind, the fire departments and districts in Marin County are offering a program in Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) for civilians.
The CERT program and manual were developed under the auspices of the Marin County Disaster & Civilian's Corps Council (DC3) based on the Federal CERT program. This program is designed to emphasize hands-on experience, and is taught to Marin County residents by Marin Fire Agency personnel. The following classes will train and prepare volunteers to achieve higher level of skills in:
Disaster First Aid/Triage
Light Search and Rescue
Utilities ( recognition/controlling)
All trainees receive a CERT manual. Upon completion, each trainee will receive a disaster service worker identification card, helmet, vest and a certificate of completion.For those of you who have completed the Basic CERT Training course, the next step is to increase your training by completing higher level CERT courses.
