CERT is a training program that prepares you to help yourself, your family, and your neighbors in the event of a disaster or emergency. A Community Emergency Response Team is a team of individuals who receive special training that enhances their ability to recognize, prepare for, respond to, and recover from a major emergency or disaster. During an incident, emergency service personnel may not be able to reach everyone right away. By getting trained in CERT, you will have the skills to help emergency responders save lives and protect property.
