During a large-scale disaster, the response of any community’s emergency services may be delayed or overwhelmed for a variety of reasons. This leaves the citizens of the community - family, neighbors, and co-workers - to provide for their own well-being and safety until professional responders arrive. As a member of the community, you can help the city respond to a disaster by preparing your family, home, school and work. This reality is the cornerstone of the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program.
The goal of the Irvine CERT program is to provide private citizens with the basic skills they will need to protect themselves, their family, and neighbors, and to respond to the immediate needs of the community in the aftermath of a disaster when emergency services are not readily available. Furthermore it is our goal to have an active CERT member on each street or at each business in Irvine. By working together, CERT members can assist in saving lives and protecting property using the basic techniques in this course.
