Julian Cuyamaca Fire Protection District CERT program (JCFPD CERT) is the ONLY OFFICIALLY recognized CERT program in the Julian/Cuyamaca area.
We are acknowledged as the official CERT program by the San Diego County CERT Council and OES, a Citizen Corps Councils and Citizen Corps partner program.
No other CERT program in this area (Julian/Cuyamaca) is officially sanctioned to operate in this jurisdiction without permission. Other programs may run but they are not covered under Disaster Service Workers insurance, no matter what you may hear, (Disasterworkers guide to DSW) which covers you when you are deployed and working in as a CERT member. This works like Workman’s Comp. Covering your medical needs and lost wages.
