Community Emergency Response Team C.E.R.T

The C.E.R.T. program is two-fold.   It is designed to prepare for and respond to the needs of yourself, your family and your neighbors in a catastrophic disaster situation and to also act as an extension of emergency services in such an event.

CERT VISION

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.

If you would like to know more about CERT and the training that is offered please feel free to take the free IS-317  INTRODUCTION TO CERT on-line training course by following the link below.  This Introduction to CERT is to help you prepare for the classroom-based CERT Basic Training Course.  http://training.fema.gov/is/courseoverview.aspx?code=is-317
