The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program is about readiness, people helping people, rescuer safety, and doing the greatest good for the greatest number. CERT is a positive and realistic approach to emergency and disaster situations where citizens will be initially on their own and their actions can make a difference. Through training, citizens can manage utilities and put out small fires; treat the three killers by opening airways, controlling bleeding, and treating for shock; provide basic medical aid; search for and rescue victims safely; and organize themselves and spontaneous volunteers to be effective.
Who: Foster City residents who are at least 16 years of age or older can participate.
When/Where: The CERT Program is taught by CERT Trainers and Fire Department personnel over an eight week period.
