CORONA VIRUS RESPONSE
All May 2020 AV CERT events, meetings, and classes are cancelled. Weekly AV CERT Amateur Radio Nets are still active.
Stay aware. Stay safe. Stay positive. Stay well.
The Antelope Valley Community Emergency Response Team (AV CERT) program educates volunteers about disaster preparedness for the hazards that may impact our desert & rural communities. We train in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. We provide critical auxiliary support to emergency services personnel during emergencies & disasters while helping to increase the Antelope Valley's overall level of disaster readiness.
These are the community members of the AV CERT Basic Training class in Sun Village, CA (February 2020). These community members are now AV CERT Level 1 volunteers. They trained to serve the disaster preparedness needs of the community while increasing the overall level of disaster readiness of the Antelope Valley.
Welcome to AV CERT, Sun Village!
AV CERT teams will receive training from the Los Angeles County Animal Care & Control Equine Response Team. This training will allow AV CERT to assist in disaster emergency large domestic animal evacuation and sheltering.
