Welcome to the official South San Francisco CERT website

Mission Statement.  To protect my family, friends and neighbors from the effects of fires, medical emergencies, accidents, hazardous materials incidents, acts of terrorism or hazards created by violations of the municipal codes through the assistance I and other CERT team members offer to the South San Francisco Fire Department in its efforts to respond to and mitigate emergency incidents or unsafe conditions.

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.
