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.
