WHAT IF . . . . . .
You dialed 9-1-1 and there was a busy tone?
OR . . . . . . . . . .
There wasn’t any dial tone at all?
WHY: In the event of a large-scale disaster, the normal Emergency Response Agencies that serve you will be overwhelmed and they might not be able to assist you for up to 72 hours (it’s simply a supply and demand issue).
WHO: Sponsored by SLO County Fire Chiefs Assoc. and the SLO County Sheriff’s Advisory Foundation.
WHAT: CERT is a “hands-on” course that teaches individuals to be better prepared in the event of a major disaster and to form into effective neighborhood teams to assist others. In the CERT training class you will learn about; how and when to turn off your Utilities; Firefighting skills; Medical skills; Hazardous Materials & Terrorism awareness; light Search and Rescue techniques; and most importantly, you’ll learn SELF RELIANCE.
