Central County Fire Department is dedicated to keeping our communities prepared and resilient by providing information that will allow them to serve not only themselves but their neighborhood and beyond. The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area, and trains them in 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 can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. The CERT Program is a dynamic community of volunteers who want to help their neighbors!

CCFD also offers several classes to help citizens become better trained and prepared to be self-reliant. These include the three-hour Get Ready training, the 20-hour Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training, and Basic First Aid and CPR training.
