Fremont Fire to Offer Community Disaster Preparedness Training Programs in 2019

PEP class

The City of Fremont’s Fire Department has released the 2019 schedule for its Disaster Preparedness Training Program, including free Personal Emergency Preparedness (PEP) and Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) classes. PEP classes are specifically designed to help residents prepare for a disaster and to take care of themselves and their families before, during, and after a disaster.


This one-time, three-hour class will educate residents on skills such as earthquake and disaster awareness, fire extinguisher types, smoke detector placement, and sheltering in place. The Fire Department offers PEP classes at two locations on multiple different dates to offer community members the opportunity to attend the class that best suits their schedule.


PEP classes at the Fremont Fire Administration Office, located at 3300 Capitol Ave. (behind the building), are held from 7 to 10 p.m. and are offered on:

  • Tuesday, January 22
  • Tuesday, March 19
  • Wednesday, May 22
  • Tuesday, July 16
  • Tuesday, October 15
  • Monday, November 18

In addition, classes at the Fremont Fire Training Tower, located on 7200 Stevenson Blvd. (West end), are held from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday, April 13 and Saturday, August 17.


To register for a PEP class, please call 510-494-4244 or send an e-mail. If your group would like to schedule your own personal group PEP class at your location, please contact Chuck Guaraglia at 510-792-3473 or by e-mail.


Additionally, Fremont Fire has developed the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program, which consists of three classes that provide residents with the skills they need to assist themselves, their families, neighbors, and Fire Department in the event of earthquakes, fires, floods, or other natural disasters. Anyone interested in taking a CERT class must first attend a Personal Emergency Preparedness (PEP) class. 


The free CERT training classes include detailed, hands-on training in building damage assessment, small fire fighting, search and rescue, first aid triage, lifting heavy objects off trapped persons, moving injured people, and incident command system and disaster communications.

 

CERT classes will be held at the Fremont Fire Training Tower on the following dates:

Class 1: Friday, March 29 at 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Class 2: Saturday, March 30 at 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
