What is the service obligation for Citizen Corps volunteers?
There is no set term for Citizen Corps volunteers; opportunities for service through Citizen Corps are flexible. CERT training is a 20 hour commitment to receive a Certificate and personal CERT equipment backpack. Volunteers are invited to attend Citizen Corps Council meetings and recognition events, and participate in annual tabletop and mock-disaster exercises sponsored by the City. Volunteers will also have a role in community outreach to promote the Citizen Corps and CERT training opportunities for Lake Elsinore citizens.
