Being trained on how to respond during an emergency situation or a disaster in your own community, at work, or on vacation is one of the most important things you can do to assist others when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also provide critical support to professional responders during an emergency situation or a disaster.
The Claremont Police Department, through its Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) provides training for its neighborhoods and businesses through the Neighborhood Safety & Preparedness Program (NSPP).
Claremont CERT provides trained team members to make neighborhood presentations and spend approximately 90 minutes discussing home and neighborhood disaster planning, concerns for the elderly and/or those with special needs, pets, proper ways to disable utilities, using a fire extinguisher and preparation after a major disaster.
Following a major disaster, police, fire and fire rescue may not be able to immediately respond to those in need. The Claremont C.E.R.T. team trains members in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.
Following a major disaster, police, fire, and fire rescue resources may not be able to immediately respond to those in need. In such crisis, it will be families assisting families, neighbors assisting neighbors and co-workers assisting co-workers until emergency response personnel can arrive. Being trained on how to be prepared to respond in an emergency situation in your own community, at work, or on vacation is one of the most important things you can to do assist during an emergency.
