CERT Course

September 19, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm


The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Course is about readiness, people helping people, rescuer safety, and doing the greatest good for the greatest number. Over the course of the CERT program, you’ll learn the most up-to-date information through hands-on training in basic disaster preparedness, use of a fire extinguisher, disaster medical care, first aid training, search and rescue techniques, communicating through FRS radios, and neighborhood team building. CERT is a positive and realistic approach to emergency and disaster situations where citizens will be initially on their own and their actions can make a difference. CERT is offered for free to residents of Belmont, Foster City, and San Mateo ages 16 years and older. The course is a series of seven (7) classes and a “Skills Day.” Registration is required. You must complete all 8 meetings and an online supplement, to receive your certification. COVID safety protocols will be followed by everyone participating in the courses.

Tuesday and Thursday evening CERT classes (in-person): August 29, August 31, September 5, September 7, September 12, September 14, September 19, and an optional “Review Class” via Zoom on September 21st.

Skills Day: Saturday, September 23rd (this is an all-day event).

Class Time : 6:30 PM – 9 PM per evening (Tuesday and Thursday evenings)
