Community Emergency Response Team

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA —Are you interested in training that will better prepare you for disasters and emergencies? Chesterfield County’s popular Community Emergency Response Team, or CERT, training is scheduled to begin March 27.

The initial training course teaches basic emergency response skills that are essential in the critical moments after a disaster, before first responders arrive. Classes are held each Tuesday morning over the course of 8 weeks.  Topics include light duty search and rescue, fire safety and suppression, basic medical care, terrorism awareness, emergency communications and disaster psychology. Graduates earn certificates and receive CERT emergency gear. This scheduled course will have a one-week break, which will make the final class and graduation on May 22. 

There is no charge for the course, which is open to persons aged 18 and older who apply. Space is limited so enroll early. The registration deadline is March 16.

Space is still available, but limited, for the Wednesday evening CERT class scheduled to begin this month.

Online registration for all CERT classes is available at www.chesterfield.gov/CERT. If you are unable to enroll online or have questions, email CERT@chesterfield.gov or call 804-751-CERT (2378).
