Community Emergency Response Team

Community Emergency Response TeamThe City of Concord, in conjunction with the County Office of Emergency Services, is sponsoring Emergency Preparedness classes for residents of the community.

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training promotes a partnering effort between emergency services and the people that they serve. The goal is for emergency personnel to train members of neighborhoods, community organizations, or workplaces in basic response skills. CERT members are then integrated into the emergency response capability for their area.

  • CERT Organization and Disaster Psychology
  • Disaster Medical Operations
  • Disaster Preparedness and Terrorism
  • Final Simulated Disaster Exercise
  • Fire Safety
  • Light Search and Rescue
