CERT Resource Materials
IMPORTANT NOTE: The 2019 CERT curriculum was released by FEMA in January 2020, replacing the 2011 curriculum. G-317, is the classroom version of CERT and can be accessed through the G-317 link below. IS-317, is the online 2014 curriculum version of CERT and hasn't been updated by FEMA yet.
  • IS-317 is the online CERT curriculum and can be completed by anyone interested in CERT. This course is recommended for those who want to review the curriculum prior to enrolling in a G-317 class or have completed the G-317 but wish to refresh their knowledge. It takes approximately six hours to complete this online course. 
  • G-317 is presented in a classroom environment and is only offered by a local government agency such as an emergency management agency, fire or police department. As required by FEMA, to become a CERT volunteer, one must complete the G-317 curriculum in its entirety. Follow these links to access the 2019 version of the CERT Participant Manual and Supplemental Course Material made available by Daisy Mountain Fire & Medical.

Incident Command System
  • The Incident Command System (ICS) is designed to manage any incident, large or small, and grow or condense with the incident. The size and complexity of incidents are classified as Type 1 through Type 5 and the ICS Organization changes to where an individual may be responsible for a single role in a large and complex incident, but responsible for several roles in a small and simple incident.
  • The Incident Action Plan (IAP) formally documents incident goals, operational period objectives, and the response strategy defined by the incident commander. Standard FEMA ICS Forms used to develop an IAP. During the initial stages of incident management, planners must develop a simple plan that can be communicated through concise verbal briefings. The Planning “P”is a guide to the process and steps involved in planning for an incident.
  • Follow this link to view, print or download IAPs from past DMFDCC events and incidents.
