Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) volunteers assist local authorities when responding to disasters and other incidents. CERT members undergo training to learn how to assist local first responders with tasks that include, but are not limited to, checking in on neighbors, distributing information to the public, supporting emergency operation centers, and helping to manage traffic and crowds. CERT volunteers also learn about fire safety, disaster medical operations, light search and rescue, terrorism awareness, first aid, triage, sheltering and commodity distribution.
