"Are You Ready?" is a great lead-in to our CERT training program. After completing Redwood City's "Are You Ready?" class, you and/or your group may be interested in our CERT training. This 20 hour, six-week training sessions will engage you with in-depth coverage of topics including Disaster Preparedness, Search and Rescue, Disaster Medicine, Disaster Fire Suppression, Communications and Command and Control. The CERT series is also FREE!

The success of Redwood City’s disaster preparedness program depends on you - your neighborhood and community will need your help in the event of disaster! We urge you to become a part of our citizen-based disaster response team, and to encourage your friends and neighbors to become involved in the "Are You Ready?" and CERT programs.
