Fillmore Fire Offers C.E.R.T. Training to Local Residents in April
The City of Fillmore Fire Department will be hosting a Community Emergency Response Team training class beginning this April.
The training program provides for community self-sufficiency through the development of multifunction response teams who will act as an adjunct to the City’s emergency services during major disasters. Through this unique program, people from community organizations, business and industry, and city employee groups will become members of C.E.R.T. or perform as individual leaders by directing untrained volunteers in the initial phase of an emergency.
By encouraging preparedness efforts and hazard mitigation, the effects of a disaster can be minimized considerably, as well as facilitate recovery. The benefits of this program are numerous. It will increase our overall level of disaster readiness, provide emergency skills that people may use in day to day emergencies, enhance the bond between government and community, increase community spirit, and improve the quality of life for the people of our City.
