The Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT) of Southwest Riverside County are coming together to host the 2018 Southwest Riverside County CERT Field Day on Saturday, September 8, 2018, at Skyview Park, located at 31991 Roripaugh Valley Road, Temecula, CA 92591. The CERT Field Day promotes a partnering effort between emergency services and the people they serve in Southwest Riverside County to create more prepared, organized, and safer communities.
The CERT program is designed to teach communities the skills to react as a cohesive and valuable asset during emergency situations. In situations such as natural disasters, first responders’ primary focus is on those in immediate danger. Under direction of local emergency responders, CERT teams provide critical support by allowing trained members of the community to provide assistance to victims, organizing volunteers, and helping others that may be less impacted but still need help. The CERT Field Day will provide CERT members an opportunity to refresh their skills by participating in exercises and activities. Specifically, the Field Day is comprised of training on medical disaster triage, fire suppression, field search techniques, and scene size-up.
The 2018 CERT Field Day is coordinated by the cities of Temecula and Murrieta and the Riverside County Emergency Management Department.
About CERT: The Federal Emergency Management Agency began promoting nationwide use of the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) concepts in 1994. CERT training promotes a partnering effort between emergency services and the people that they serve. The goal is for emergency personnel to train members of neighborhoods, community organizations, or workplaces in basic response skills. CERT members are then integrated into the emergency response capability for their area.
