Northwest Orange County residents have an opportunity to register for a new emergency preparedness training class hosted by West Orange County CERT.

West Orange County CERT Class registration open

CERT is an opportunity for residents to learn basic skills to save lives and protect property in the aftermath of a major disaster when traditional emergency response resources may be limited or not immediately available. The training program provides for community self-sufficiency through the development of multi-functional teams, who will act as an adjunct to the City’s emergency services during major disasters.

The next round of CERT training starts on Friday, March 20.
