About the Training Program

In an effort to prepare residents of Sunnyvale to protect family and property, the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety's Office of Emergency Services developed this 7-week CERT Training Program.  The purpose of CERT is to provide Sunnyvale residents with tools to be self-sufficient for a minimum of 72 hours following a disaster and to be able to become an asset to their neighborhoods as well as the city. 

CERTs learn to use fire extinguisher

These well-trained volunteers stand ready to provide assistance to their neighborhoods and community in the immediate aftermath of a disaster. Following a disaster, emergency services personnel may be unavailable to meet the demands of its community.  The emergency services that you have come to expect through 9-1-1 at a moments notice, such as police, fire, medical, etc. may be dispatched elsewhere.  As we witnessed during previous disasters, initially people have to rely on each other for help in order to meet their immediate life saving and life sustaining needs.

CERTs learn and practice CPR

The training program is on a volunteer basis, taught for seven consecutive weeks.  As a CERT participant, you will learn about disaster preparedness empowering you to help save lives while working with the City of Sunnyvale to do "The greatest good for the greatest number of people."
