CERT Training

Are you prepared to help your family and neighborhood? Disasters can happen at any time. Join CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) and learn the skills to better prepare you for emergencies and how to respond when your family, neighbors, and community need you the most.


The City of Martinez, in conjunction with the County Office of Emergency Services, is sponsoring Emergency Preparedness classes for residents of the community.  The goals of the CERT program are to enable neighborhood or workplace teams to prepare for and respond effectively to an event until professional responders arrive, to provide a link between neighborhood or workplace teams and professional responders, and to integrate CERT Zones into the community. CERT members are then integrated into the emergency response capability for their area.  CERT training will include 20 hours of instruction over a 6-week period in the following areas:

Disaster Preparedness and Terrorism

Fire Safety

Disaster Medical Operations

Light Search and Rescue

CERT Organization and Disaster Psychology

Final Simulated Disaster Exercise

For more information about the CERT program or to register for classes, e-mail [email protected] or Corporal Mike Estanol at [email protected]. Thank you for your interest and support.
