Arlington CERT Basic Training

Arlington County Fire Training Academy

First responders do their best to respond as quickly as possible, but it is also the responsibility of individual citizens to learn how to protect themselves, their loved ones, and their communities. Biannually, in about 30 hours of training over six weeknights and two weekend days (in 2020, April-May and September-October), the Arlington CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) Basic Training program educates volunteers about disaster preparedness and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. If you are interested in emergency preparedness and learning life-saving skills in the event of a major disaster, sign up for this valuable training.
