The Cities of Placentia and Yorba Linda will be hosting a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training beginning September 26th through October 12th. The training will be hosted at the Yorba Linda Community Center on Tuesday and Thursday nights for three weeks. Each night of training will feature different topics, such as introduction to disaster preparedness, fire safety and utility controls, disaster psychology, and disaster medical operations.
To sustain and increase our level of preparedness, CERT courses are offered to the public several times a year. The courses provide up to 20-hours of training. Upon completion of the CERT training, each participant will be given the option and resources to further their individual training and to serve their neighbors and neighborhoods.
If you are interested in taking the next CERT course, please contact the City of Placentia Health and Emergency Services Division at (714) 993-8214 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Let’s all do our part to be #ReadyPlacentia!
