Registration now open for August 30 – September 24 course!
Gilroy’s Office of Emergency Services is offering CERT training, a 20-hour, all-hazard training program that trains volunteers on preparing, organizing, and working together as a team. This course is a combination of online training with one-day in-person training covering essential disaster preparedness information, including hazards in our area and basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization and communications, damage assessment, disaster psychology, and disaster medical operations. After completing the course, you may elect to participate in Gilroy’s Emergency Services Volunteer program to provide much-needed community support during and after a disaster.
