Taught by Los Angeles County firefighters, participants will learn to treat life-threatening conditions through a method used by first responders called Simple Triage and Rapid Treatment (S.T.A.R.T).  By the end of the course, trainees will be able to identify the proper courses of action and organize available resources based on the disaster situation at hand.

CERT also incorporates table top exercises and realistic simulations to illustrate topics such as search and rescue operations, terrorism, disaster psychology, and medical operations.

Certified by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the CERT program requires no previous knowledge to participate and trainees must be 18 years or older to participate.

Registration is now open and prospective participants can register online until spaces are filled.

For more information on the CERT program, please call (661) 250-3708 or visit santa-clarita.com.
