Event description
CERT Training teaches you disaster response skills so you can safely help yourself and those around you when disasters strike.

About this event

In 95% of emergencies, bystanders or victims themselves are the first to provide emergency assistance or to perform a rescue.

Experience proves that basic training in emergency preparedness and disaster survival improves the ability of citizens to survive until assistance arrives. The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program trains you to prepare for and respond to emergencies in your community. The City participates in the national Citizen Corps Program, which aims to make communities safer, stronger and better prepared through education, training and volunteer service. On the local level, the City of Richmond CERT program supports Mayor Stoney’s commitment to safe communities.

The Richmond CERT Program educates residents about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact the City 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 CERT exercises, members can assist their community or workplace following an emergency event when professional responders are not immediately available to help.

The course is provided FREE of charge by the City of Richmond and includes an online lecture portion followed by an in-person, hands-on, practical portion. Upon completion of the full course, you will receive a CERT kit and CERT Field Operating Guide.

As a trained CERT member, you can make a real difference in your community and ‘Be the Help Until Help Arrives’
