City of Loma Linda Emergency Volunteer Programs
Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)
CERT is comprised of community members, is trained to provide assistance to their families, neighbors, and the community during a disastrous event. Members are trained in disaster preparedness, light fire suppression, basic medical aid, light search & rescue, and team operations. To become a member, community members take a 20-hr class that includes lectures and hands-on training. There are ongoing training opportunities and community involvement. Visit us at www.LomaLindaCERT.com for more information.
Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES)
RACES members are amateur radio operators who provide radio communications for major emergencies. RACES members have valid FCC licenses and are trained to support emergency services. These members meet quarterly and “check in” on a weekly basis.
For additional information on any of these volunteer opportunities contact the Loma Linda Fire Department Emergency Services at (909) 799-2860.
