CERT

Central County Fire Department is dedicated to keeping our communities prepared and resilient by providing information that will allow them to serve not only themselves but their neighborhood and beyond.

CCFD also offers several classes to help citizens become better trained and prepared to be self-reliant. These include the 20-hour Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training, the three-hour Get Ready training, plus Basic First Aid and CPR training.

 


Get Ready | Disaster Preparedness Training

This basic disaster preparedness class will teach you how to prepare yourself, your family, home and workplace for a major disaster. The information provided will allow you to help yourself, rather than needing help, following a disaster.

This class is free and open to all Burlingame, Hillsborough and Millbrae residents!
