CERT

Community Emergency Response Team Training (CERT)

CERT is a training program that prepares you to help yourself, your family, and your neighbors in the event of a disaster. During an incident, emergency services personnel may not be able to reach everyone right away. By getting trained in CERT, you will have the skills to help emergency responders save lives and protect property.

As a member of a CERT team, you can respond to disasters, participate in drills and exercises, and take additional training.

Graduates of the eight week program will receive a certificate and a back-pack with basic emergency supplies to serve as an “Emergency Go-Kit.”
