Community Training Opportunities


Thank you for your interest in our community preparedness programs. At this time, we regret to inform the public that we have postponed all community preparedness courses in calendar year 2015 due to a shortage of instructors and course materials. The City of San Jose Office of Emergency Services (OES) is currently seeking volunteers to teach community preparedness courses. If you are interested in volunteering please contact us at (408) 794-7055.
