Until Help Arrives and CERT

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

Are you ready for the next emergency or disaster? The CERT program educates volunteers about disaster preparedness for the 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. 

The City of Fontana, in coordination with the San Bernardino County Fire Department, conducts a free three-day basic training course periodically throughout the year.
