Mohave County Offers

Free CERT Training

MOHAVE COUNTY, AZ (July 6, 2021) —   The Mohave County Department of Risk and Emergency Management will be offering new training sessions in August for individuals interested in learning basic disaster skills such as fire safety, light urban search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.

CERT is a national community preparedness program operated under the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Citizen Corps Council.

After Hurricane Nora in 1996, Mohave County created its CERT Program to enhance emergency preparedness and increase community education, awareness and outreach. Over the years, many communities have developed and implemented CERT as an effective means of helping local fire departments. With an increase this year in statewide wildland fires and post fire flooding, CERTs can utilize their new skills and resources to reduce their neighborhood impacts from disaster.

Classes will be held on Friday August 06 from 6:00pm-8:00pm, Saturday August 07 from 9:00am-4:00pm, Friday August 27 from 6:00pm-8:00pm and Saturday August 28 9:00am-4:00pm.  Training will be located at the Hualapai Mountain Community Event Center located at 4525 Hualapai Mtn. Road. Kingman, AZ 86401. This is a four-day class and you must attend all four classes to receive the certification.

If you are interested in attending this free training course, please contact the Mohave County Department of Risk and Emergency Management by e-mail at [email protected] or by calling (928) 753-0739.
