The CERT Story
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program educates volunteers about disaster preparedness for the 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.
Classes are held over 7 Tuesday nights during which you learn about: Disaster Preparedness, Fire Suppression, First Aid Treatments, Medical Operations, Search and Rescue Skills, Team Organization, Disaster Psychology along with a hands-on simulation! Take CERT training for yourself, your family, and your community. A CERT member is trained to prepare for and respond after a disaster to provide assistance in their neighborhood.
