County of Los Angeles: Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Training

"Following a major disaster, fire and rescue resources may be unable to immediately respond to all those in need. In such a crisis, it will be neighbors assisting neighbors until emergency response personnel can arrive. Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training provides residents with the skills and tools necessary to take care of themselves, their families, neighbors, and coworkers in the event of a disaster." CERT training is free. Find a class: Rosemead, CA CERTCounty of LA CERT, nationwide listings by ZIP code.
