The Redondo Beach Fire Department C.E.R.T. Academy will take place April 19 through June 16 and is now accepting applications.
The Redondo Beach Fire Department C.E.R.T. Academy began in April 1996, with overwhelming success. To date, over 1000 individuals have received training. The C.E.R.T. concept is based on increasing disaster preparedness and awareness within the community by having a core group of trained individuals capable of assisting themselves, their family and their neighbors in the event of a catastrophic disaster.
Although Fire and Police emergency service personnel are the best trained and equipped to handle disasters, they will not be able to help everyone in post disaster response and recovery. You can make the difference by using the training you will receive to save lives and protect property. Are you ready?
