The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program helps train people
to be prepared for and to respond to emergency situations within their
communities. When emergencies happen, CERT members can give critical support to
First Responders, provide immediate assistance to victims and organize other
volunteers to help. Remember, at a
time of disaster it may take several hours or days to get help from government
agencies. The public must be able
to help one another. The CERT course is taught in your community by a team that
has completed a CERT Train-the-Trainer course conducted by their state training
office of Emergency Management, or through FEMA's Emergency Management
Institute. CERT training programs
include; disaster preparedness, fire suppression, basic disaster medical and
ground search and rescue operations. Again, you must remember,
at a time of disaster it may take several hours or days to get help from
government agencies so the public must be able to help one another. Remember neighbors are trained to help neighbors!
Get Involved! Get Trained!
