Community Emergency Response Team

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is an eight-week program that educates community members about disaster preparedness for hazards that could affect their area and trains them in basic response skills - including fire safety, search and rescue, and medical operations.

Trained CERT volunteers can help others in their community or workplace following a disaster, particularly when professional emergency responders are not immediately available.
