With real hands on training during the various classes, participants that take the entire course will use fire extinguishers on a real fire, perform search and rescue operations in the fire training tower and participate in a disaster exercise.

Upon completion of the entire CERT program, team members will be registered as emergency workers in the State of Washington and receive Kitsap County CERT identification cards. They will also be given a back pack with some of the tools necessary for CERT members in the field!
