Next CERT Meeting

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)
The CERT program educates individuals about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using training learned in the classroom and during exercise, CERT volunteers can assist others in their community following a disaster when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT volunteers are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking an active role in emergency preparedness projects.

How does CERT help the community?
CERT is a critical program in the effort to engage everyone in America in making their communities safer, more prepared and more resilient when incidents occur. CERT Basic Training is designed to prepare you to help yourself and to help others in the event of a catastrophic disaster.
