Community Emergency Response Team CERT Program
What is CERT?
During the first 72 hours after any type of disaster local, county, state and federal emergency services can be committed beyond their capabilities. Infrastructures such as water, power, telephones and streets can be disabled or damaged. When this happens the residents need to be prepared to help themselves. Are you ready for this type of emergency?

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) trains people in neighborhoods, the workplace, and schools in basic disaster response skills, such as fire suppression, urban search and rescue, and medical operations, and helps them take a more active role in emergency preparedness. Volunteer response is an option and not a requirement of the CERT training.
