About the BERT Program:

Business Emergency Resiliency Training (BERT) prepares businesses and employees for an emergency through a six-course series. Each session can be taken as a stand-alone preparedness course but forms a comprehensive training if completed in a series. Each course teaches a skill or adds another tool for building disaster resiliency.

Taking the classes in succession allows you to establish a cohort style relationship with fellow businesses in the community. Your participation will have a greater impact in building community preparedness and resiliency because businesses can help businesses in a time of disaster. BERT courses are FREE and offered every year in a sequence.

Business: All businesses are welcome. Your business does not have to be located in Rancho Cucamonga.
