The curriculum is presented by Ventura County Fire Department personnel and is held at the City’s Emergency Operation Center. A Disaster Simulation will wrap-up the training on Saturday, April 20, 2019 and is followed by the presentation of certificates of completion to all CERT Graduates at the City Council meeting on Monday, April 22, 2019.

    Nobody should ever let their family or neighbors be a victim in a disaster. the CERT class is a wonderful way to make sure that you can help relieve first responders in an emergency. After all, we are our family’s first responders.
