Community Emergency Response Training

Be prepared to help your neighbors and community in an emergency! Register now for the Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) course offered this fall.  

Staunton, Waynesboro, and Augusta County in partnership with the Central Shenandoah Planning District Commission will be offering Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) on Thursday evenings at 6:30 p.m. from September 26 – November 14 (no class on October 31). The course will be held at the Central Shenandoah Planning District Commission office at 112 MacTanly Place, Staunton.  

This seven-week course uses a standard curriculum designed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and teaches basic skills in disaster preparedness, fire safety, first aid, terrorism awareness, disaster psychology, and search and rescue procedures. The CERT course is designed to give the average person tools to not only prepare themselves and their family during severe weather or other emergencies, but to assist community members and emergency personnel when needed.   

The course is free and open to anyone who lives or works in Staunton, Waynesboro, or Augusta County. All materials are provided. Pre-registration is required no later than September 18. Contact Rebecca Joyce, CERT Coordinator by email at or by telephone at 540-885-5174 ext. 112 to register.
