Want to learn disaster response skills that you can use to help your family and neighbors in the event of an emergency? West Orange County Regional CERT program is taking applications for their July class.
The West Orange County CERT Academy covers basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members are better able to assist their family, neighborhood and/or workplace following an event when first responders (paramedics, fire, police) are not immediately available to help.
In a wide spread emergency event like an earthquake, it could be 3 to 7 days before any emergency responders are available to reach the neighborhoods and businesses in Western Orange County.
This is why attending the CERT Academy training is so important for you – for the safety/survival of your family, if no other reason. Please make the time and take this course. Plus, you may even have some fun while you learn.

Friday, July 12 6:00 p.m - 9:00 p.m.
