Join Provo’s Community Emergency Response Team!
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program is back! This year, Orem and Provo CERT classes will combine for a hybrid course consisting of on-your-own online learning and in-class hands-on skills training.
We invite you to join us and experience this class for yourself. The CERT program is an amazing opportunity for residents to learn about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area. You will be trained in basic disaster response skills such as – fire suppression, search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.
Using the training learned in the classroom and during CERT exercises, members can assist their family, community, or workplace following an emergency event when professional responders are not immediately available to help.
This session of the CERT Training will run from 6:30 – 9:30 pm on four Tuesday evenings:
and a Mock Disaster/CERT Exercise will take place on Saturday, March 23.
A material fee of $35.00 is charged to cover expenses. All other expenses are covered by the city.
You will be taught how to prepare your homes and families for an emergency. Safety at home will allow the CERT team members the added ability to help their neighbors. Once neighborhoods are safe, CERT team members may be called on by City emergency workers to aid in disaster recovery elsewhere in the City.
