Daisy Mountain Fire & Medical’s Community
Emergency Response Team (CERT) Training
Developed by the Department of Homeland Security for Local Community Preparedness, this training session is provided for free. It’s tailored to the Phoenix area and more specifically, the Daisy Mountain communities. Training is open to anyone who is at least 18 years old. The class is eight consecutive Thursdays, and students must attend all eight to receive a certificate of completion. If a disastrous event overwhelms or delays the community’s professional response, CERT members can assist others by applying the basic response and organizational skills that they learned during training. These skills can help save and sustain lives following a disaster until help arrives.
