CERT training is designed to prepare people to help themselves, their families, and their neighbors in the event of a catastrophic disaster. Because emergency services personnel will not be able to help everyone immediately, a person can make a difference by using the CERT training to save lives and protect property.
Several CERT classes in November will be offered for residents in the Del Mar, Encinitas, Rancho Santa Fe and Solana Beach areas.
