The Community Emergency Planning & Disaster Preparedness Division coordinates all aspects of planning and preparedness as it relates to small and large-scale emergencies. This includes anything from a house fire to a catastrophic earthquake.
To get individuals and families prepared for emergencies, this division provides:
Basic Emergency Preparedness
A one-hour presentation that is geared towards organizations such as Homeowners Associations, PTAs, and Service Clubs to give citizens a basic understanding of the threats we face and the steps to take to become better prepared.
A 2.5-hour presentation on how to prepare your home, workplace, vehicle, and utilities for an earthquake or disaster.
Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)
A 20-hour training course held over an eight-week period educates and trains individuals in basic disaster response skills, including general preparedness, fire safety, disaster medical operations, light search & rescue, team organization, disaster psychology, and terrorism.
CPR Training & Certification
First Aid & CPR/AED classes are offered several times throughout the year.
