The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)
The CERT program encourages citizens to share the responsibility for mitigation and preparation in their communities, educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area, and trains them in basic disaster response skills, including fire safety, light search and rescue, terrorism awareness, team organization, and disaster medical operations.
CERT aims to provide training that allows participants to assist their communities by doing the greatest good for the greatest number.
If you are interested in joining CERT, contact your local Fire Department.
