Napa Valley C.E.R.T.
Community Emergency Response Team Training
"Preparing the Napa Valley"

Following a major disaster, emergency responders in Napa County will not be able to meet the demand for response. Factors such as number of victims, communication failures & road blockages will prevent people from accessing emergency services they have come to expect at a moment’s notice through 911. People will have to rely on each other for help in order to meet their immediate life saving & sustaining needs. You may be on your own for several hours to several days! Are you prepared to help yourself, family & neighbors in the event of a major disaster? Do you know what utilities to shut off in your home and how? Do you know how to extinguish a fire before it becomes large? Do you know how to safely remove a victim trapped under debris? Do you know the basic first aid techniques that can save a life? These questions are answered in a free course now being offered to the residents & workers of Napa County with the cooperation of the County of Napa & the Cities of Napa, American Canyon, Calistoga and the Napa Valley College. It consists of 5 classes over a 1-week period covering a series of topics in a 20-hour format that are taught in a “hands on” environment. Mandatory attendance at all classes is required for graduation & continuation in the C.E.R.T. graduate program. Academy #66 will be held entirely in Napa and the course dates are as follows:

Monday, May 17th 6:45 pm to 9:15 pm
Tuesday, May 18th 6:45 pm to 9:15 pm
Wednesday, May 19th 6:45 pm to 9:15 pm
Thursday, May 20th 6:45 pm to 9:15 pm
Saturday, May 22nd 8 am to 5 pm
