WHO TEACHES THE CERT COURSE?
The Sbeastopol CERT program has been extremely fortunate to have both our local Fire Fighters and Policemen as instructors since the very first class in 2006. Each unit of the CERT curriculum is greatly enhanced by the real-life experience brought to the class by these instructors.
WHY HAS THE SEBASTOPOL CERT PROGRAM PERSISTED WHEN OTHER SOCO CERT PROGRAMS HAVE CEASED?
The Sebastool CERT program has been able to continue teaching basic CERT classes, and expanding into other areas of emergency management within Sebastopol, for 5 primary reasons:
- The support of the Fire Chief and the Fire Department
- Instructors (see above FAQ) volunteering their experience and time to the program
- Local financial support (see Sponsors)
- Responsible and active residents willing to learn what to do
- An active CERT Advisory Board
