[ARCHIVED] Community Emergency Response Training Offered

CERT Training

CERT: Basic Training Class teaches basic disaster response skills so you can safely help yourself and those around you.

Paso Robles, CA – September 7, 2022.  In the event of a major wildfire, earthquake, or wide spread flooding, emergency resources would immediately respond, but it is likely that they could be overwhelmed by the number of calls.  If your home was threatened, or a family member injured, it might be hours before help could arrive.  Would you know what to do?

The North San Luis Obispo County Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) program is offering the CERT: Basic Training Class which teaches you basic disaster response skills so you can safely help yourself and those around you.  You will learn how to prepare for disasters, about the CERT organization, basic first aid, terrorism, disaster psychology, and more.  You will also extinguish a small fire, and participate in a structure search and rescue.  Take this course and learn how to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your community when disaster strikes. 

Individuals who have completed CERT training have been involved in flood and tsunami watches, searches for missing persons, traffic and crowd management, emergency radio communications, wildfire fuel reduction programs, and disaster recovery efforts.

The 20 hour class will be presented Tuesday, September 27th, Thursday, September 29th, Tuesday, October 4th, and Thursday, October 6th, from 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm.  On Saturday, October 8th students will participate in a review and disaster scenario from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm.   Completion of all training sessions is required to obtain a certificate.  A $40.00 donation to cover the cost of instruction materials is requested.  Checks should be made payable to the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Advisory Foundation, an IRC Sec. 501(c) (3) non-profit corporation.

You may register for this class by sending an email to or by calling 805 588-2172.  After you register, you will receive an email containing additional information about the class.  

The Community Emergency Response Training program is supported nationally by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and sponsored locally by Paso Robles Fire and Emergency Services.  More than 600,000 citizens have been trained nationally since 1993, and there are more than 2,600 CERT programs across America.
