Community Emergency Response Team

Hi and welcome to the CERT San Diego information page!  We are very excited to announce the dates for our next CERT Academy.  Our Fall 2018 Academy will be held on the following days:  November 17 and 18 and December 1 and 2.  To participate, students must be 18 years and older, live in the city of San Diego and have registered through this site.  If you do not live in San Diego but are still interested in attending, you can still sign up!  We will keep your name on the roster and invite you to attend on the first day of class.  If there are available seats due to late cancellations or no-shows, the space in the academy will be re-assigned to you.

Under each of our "Opportunities" are listed "Activities".  When you click one of these activities, you will be taken to a page that provides more details just on that specific activity.  Here you will see a section called "Qualifications".  To sign up for any specific activity, you must meet these qualifications.  The way you get these qualifications is by clicking the "My Profile" tab on your home page, then selecting "Qualifications" from the drop-down list that appears.  Here is where you can select the appropriate qualifications for the activity you wish to participate in.  (*Note:  next to each qualification is an "I".  Click this "I" to get details on what information is needed.) If you have any questions at all, please contact the CERT Program Office by email at  

We look forward to seeing you this fall!

CERT SD Volunteer Opportunity

This opportunity can include non-CERT SD members and are mostly open to the public.  For instance, each academy graduation there is a live-action disaster drill that requires several disaster survivors (also known as Volunteer Victims).  Anyone who is 13 and older (with a parent or guardian's permission if under 18), can participate in this role.
