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 community to provide for their own well-being and safety until first responders arrive. This reality is the cornerstone of the Yorba Linda Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program.

As a member of the community, you can help the City of Yorba Linda respond to a disaster by enrolling in the upcoming session of the Yorba CERT program to prepare yourself to assist your family, neighbors, and coworkers in the event of an emergency. Scheduled to begin Tuesday, February 5, 2019, the session will cover a variety of topics including:
  • Fire Safety;
  • CERT Team Organization;
  • Light Search and Rescue;
  • Terrorism Awareness;
  • Disaster Psychology; and
  • Disaster Medical Operations;

Classes will be held at the City of Brea Civic/Conference Center. For the full schedule of classes and registration information, view the CERT page of the website. For additional information, contact Mike Ferdig at 714-961-7014 or send him an email.
