Registration is currently open for the September CERT (Community Emergency Response Training) class, which will coincide with National Preparedness month. CERT Training fills up very quickly, the classes only accommodate about 35 people, so community members are advised to sign up early. The course is offered three times a year and you can sign up on the City’s website.
This training covers basic skills that are important to know when emergency services are not immediately available. In case of an emergency, you can make a difference by using this training to save lives and protect property right here in Santa Clarita. Registration can be done online or by filling out the form and mailing it in.
The course begins Thursday, September 10 and runs seven consecutive Thursdays through October 22, 2009. The hours are 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
