Community Emergency Response Team

The Community Emergency Response Team

(CERT) Program educates people 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 the training learned in the

classroom and during exercises, CERT members

can assist others in their neighborhood or

workplace following an event when professional

responders are not immediately available to help.

CERT members also are encouraged to support

emergency response agencies by taking a more

active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.
