Hayward offers Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training
The Hayward Fire Department is providing a free CERT Training Program which will consist of four evening indoor classes and one outdoor "hands on" skills class. Participants learn skills that will enable them to provide emergency assistance to their families and immediate neighbors as well as organize a neighborhood team response. Training will begin in the month of April 2013 at City Hall. Class schedule is as follows:
Class #1, Monday, April 8: 6-9:30pm at Hayward City Hall
Class #2, Monday, April 15: 6-9:30pm at Hayward City Hall

You must attend all classes in order to receive certification. CERT training is for all City of Hayward and Fairview residents.
