Community Emergency Response Team Program–Part 2

Disaster-Finding Help-CERT

Here is the second part of our interview with J.J. Surbeck, President of the CERT program in Encinitas, CA. (Click here for Part 1.)

The national Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their local community and trains them in basic disaster response skills such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.

J.J. is a former employee of the International Red Cross and the American Red Cross. In this interview, he explains how the American Red Cross classes are complementary to the CERT training program and how you can begin to prepare for any emergency.
