[ARCHIVED] CERT Training

Waukegan Community Emergency Response Team









The Waukegan Fire Department's next Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) class starts on February 28th. This FREE nine-week class is held at Fire Station #5 (3221 N Green Bay Rd). 

The 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.

Be a part of the City's emergency response team by filling out the application and emailing it to matthew.burleson@waukeganil.gov
