As we have seen in the media, natural and man-made disasters are becoming the new norm. Numerous hurricanes have impacted the City of Pompano Beach. Other disasters such as tornadoes, flooding, fires, hazardous materials incidents and acts of terrorism have also proven that the initial hours following a disaster may overwhelm emergency and rescue personnel and volunteers are a valuable resource within their communities.

CERT training with the Pompano Beach Fire Department will include interactive hands-on training. There are no examinations required to successfully pass this program, however your skills will be measured through practical exercises. Through the course, you will learn lifesaving skills that will assist your family and our community during the first critical hours after a disaster. At the conclusion of the program, students will receive a certificate and become a member of the Pompano Beach Community Emergency Response Team. Participant enthusiasm continues through service with our many on-going volunteer opportunities.

If you have any questions, please contact Krystal Aaron at 954-547-2471 or
