Join the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

The unthinkable happens, a major quake devastates the greater Tacoma area, first responders are unable to get to your neighborhood to help - would you know what to do?

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates participants about the hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, utility safety, team organization, and disaster medical operations. 

The Tacoma Fire Department invites citizens who live or work within the city limits of Tacoma to become a certified member of our team through completion of the CERT program.  The spring 2012 CERT training begins March 6 and the cost is unbeatable - its free!  For more details about the course schedule and meeting dates register here and we look forward to seeing you there!
