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.
You can help yourself prepare for a disaster by enrolling in the upcoming session of the Yorba Linda CERT program to prepare yourself to assist your family, neighbors, and coworkers in the event of an emergency. Scheduled to begin Tuesday, September 24, 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 Yorba Linda Community Center. For the full schedule of classes and registration information, view the City website. For additional information, contact Mark Aalders at 714-961-7106 or email him at email@example.com.
