OPEN ENROLLMENT FOR THE SIMI VALLEY COMMUNITY EMERGENCY RESPONSE TRAINING (CERT) ACADEMY IS GOING ON RIGHT NOW

The Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) Academy is a great way to learn how to become better prepared for earthquakes, brush fires, and all kinds of other emergencies. The goal of CERT is to provide residents with the most comprehensive preparedness training and teach useful skills through hands-on activities in an “Academy” format.

The CERT Academy is FREE to Simi Valley residents’ 18-years and older and will meet one night a week for six-weeks beginning on Wednesday, March 13, 2019 and ending on Wednesday, April 17, 2019. The curriculum is presented by Ventura County Fire Department personnel and is held at the City’s Emergency Operation Center. A Disaster Simulation will wrap-up the training on Saturday, April 20, 2019 and is followed by the presentation of certificates of completion to all CERT Graduates at the City Council meeting on Monday, April 22, 2019.

The CERT Academy is open for enrollment NOW. The next academy will be offered in the fall of 2019. To enroll online visit: www.simivalley.org/CERT or contact the City of Simi Valley Office of Emergency Services at CERT@simivalley.org.
