Join Mill Valley's Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) and work alongside emergency personnel to help your community during an emergency. To qualify, take Marin County's 18-hour CERT training, given monthly in alternating cities in Marin.

In a large scale disaster, both self-reliance and the use of volunteers under professional assistance will be necessary.  With this in mind, the fire departments and districts in Marin County are offering a program in Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) for civilians.

The CERT program and manual were developed under the auspices of the Marin County Disaster & Civilian's Corps Council (DC3) based on the Federal CERT program.  This program is designed to emphasize hands-on experience, and is taught to Marin County residents by Marin Fire Agency personnel.  The following classes will train and prepare volunteers to achieve higher level of skills in:

  • Emergency Preparedness
  • Disaster First Aid/Triage
  • Fire Prevention/Suppression
  • Light Search and Rescue
  • Utilities ( recognition/controlling)
