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.
Until Help Arrives
Life-threatening emergencies can happen fast, and emergency responders are not always nearby. You may be the help Until Help Arrives!
Through the training, you will learn to:
Use simple and effective skills to save lives
Communicate with 9-1-1 operators effectively
Act to protect the injured from further harm
Position the injured
Stop life-threatening bleeding
Provide emotional support
This course is intended for adults or older teens (accompanied by parent or guardian) with limited or no first aid training.
