Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is a program that educates individuals about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT volunteers can assist others in their community following a disaster when professional responders are not immediately available to help.
The City of Eastvale collaborates with Riverside County Emergency Management Department to provide 2 CERT Classes in the Spring and Fall of each year. CERT training is a commitment of 20 hours of training. There is no cost for the training. Only those who successfully complete the full course will receive a certificate of completion. Classes are typically over a 2 1/2 day span but are subject to change: Friday from 5:30pm to 9:30pm, Saturday 8:00am to 5:00pm, and Sunday 8:00am to 5:00pm.
