Following a major disaster, police, fire and medical professionals may not be able to fully meet the demand. People will have to rely on each other to meet the immediate life saving and life sustaining needs, particularly in isolated neighborhoods that may be cut off from the main roads for a period of time. The County of Los Angeles Fire Department's Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program was developed to provide basic training in safety and life saving skills for the general public.
