Event description

Description

Following a major disaster, police, fire and medical professionals may not be able to fully meet the demand. People will have to rely on each other to meet the immediate life saving and life sustaining needs, particularly in isolated neighborhoods that may be cut off from the main roads for a period of time.

The CERT program provides private citizens with basic skills that will enable them to handle their own needs and then to respond to their community’s needs in the aftermath of a disaster. A total of 25+ hours of instruction is provided. Participants must attend ALL 3 DAYS (25+ HOURS) to receive a certificate of completion.

The program is offered FREE of charge, and is open to all City of Temple City residents and business members. Participants must be 18 years old or older. Individuals who are 16-17 years old may attend if accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Registration is on a first-come, first-registered basis, as space is limited.



Saturday, August 17, 2019 - 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Saturday, August 24, 2019 - 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
