WHAT IS CERT?

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness and trains
them in basic disaster response skills such as fire safety, light search & rescue and disaster medical operations.  Using
their training, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood, school or workplace following an event and can
take a more active role in preparing for their community.
