While the main purpose of CERT is to train citizens to take care of themselves, their families, and neighbors in the event of a disaster, many CERT Members in Culver City decide to volunteer to assist the city in times of emergency as well as disaster. Culver City CERT is under the control of the Culver City Fire Department and is run by a Board of Directors which serve a two year term.

In the event of an emergency the Culver City Fire Department can “activate” CERT to assist the city when needed. Members do not self “activate” unless there is a major earthquake effecting the city. They are contacted by the Culver City Fire Department to assist in the emergency.
