Martinez CERT Classes

Martinez CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) is sponsoring two free training class sessions on Saturday mornings, beginning March 18, and Tuesday evenings, beginning March 14. The Martinez 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 assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. 

To become a CERT member, you must complete a FREE 20-hour CERT Basic Training course and participate in at least one exercise per year. Continuing education opportunities are available for free to all CERT members. For more information or to register, visit
