The Alameda County Fire Department offers a variety of trainings to provide community members with the tools and resources to become better prepared and self-sufficient during a large scale emergency or disaster.

Whether you are able to spend two hours or 20 hours becoming better prepared for the next emergency, we encourage you to review the descriptions of our emergency preparedness trainings and participate in the program that best suits your needs.
