We want our community to be prepared in the case of an emergency or a disaster. This is why we offer free training and support in both English and Spanish.
Led by Fire Battalion Chief and CERT Program Manager David Cosgrave, this is the FEMA 20-24 hour classroom + hands-on basic emergency preparedness and response skills training class offered with special local emphasis on potential Coastside emergencies.
See our CERT training page.
LISTOS (www.cfalistos.org) is a state-wide grassroots disaster preparedness program that can be tailored to meet the individual needs of Spanish-speaking communities. Family-oriented and taught in Spanish, the program is delivered in a format that is both culturally and linguistically appropriate for the target population.
The Great Coastside ShakeOut is a Coastside-wide earthquake and radio drill offering all Coastside neighborhoods plus Branch 3 & 4 and local emergency response agencies the opportunity to participate in a unified emergency response exercise.
