CERT Presentation Files

These links are to the most current PowerPoint slides in use by the Lamorinda CERT in Contra Costa County, California.

In January 2020 we received a new set of presentation slides from FEMA. Contra Costa CERT Coalition has just finished ‘localizing’ these materials.

The content is a compilation of information from many sources and is the decision of a group of instructors. Any comments are welcome and encouraged. Please send comments to webmaster@lamorindacert.org and include the Released date as shown on the first slide of each set and the Visual number shown on the slide. For instance: 08/08/2021  Visual UHF.31

Videos are embedded into the presentations so that they start automatically when you move to the appropriate slide.
