CERT graduation class
These are the people who will save you in an emergency
Be one of them

The City of Shoreline Office of Emergency Management will be conducting a spring Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training in April.

CERT is a training program used nationwide to help communities prepare for and respond to disasters and is an integral part of the Ready Shoreline program.

CERT training includes both classroom and “hands-on” training in the areas of home preparedness, fire suppression, first aid, search and rescue, terrorism awareness and disaster psychology.

At the end of CERT training, a disaster simulation is held to allow participants to practice their skills in a realistic setting.

There are seven classes that must be completed to graduate the course. Here is the class schedule:
