Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

You can make a difference in our community by using the CERT training we offer to save lives and protect property.

On a normal day, emergency services personnel are the best trained and equipped to handle emergencies and we all count on them for their expertise. However, following a catastrophic disaster, emergency response personnel may not be able to help everyone immediately, because of the size of the area affected, loss of communications, and impassable roads.

The Puget Sound Fire CERT program serves the areas of Kent, Covington, SeaTac/Burien and Fire District 37.

This class meets once a week for eight weeks.

Course Description
CERT training gives you the skills to help save and sustain lives following a disaster until help arrives. Take a look at the course description.


The training is free. You are welcome to attend the training if you live, work, or spend time in the Kent/Covington or SeaTac/Burien area.

The next session will start in March 8th, 2018

  • afternoon class  (1:00pm-4:30) – Seats still available
  • evening class (6:00pm-9:30) – Currently full and accepting waitlist students
