Community Emergency Response Team
(CERT) educates individuals about disaster preparedness for hazards
that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response
skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team
organization, and disaster medical operations. Using training learned
in the classroom and during exercises, CERT volunteers can assist
others in their community following a disaster when professional
responders are not immediately available to help. CERT volunteers are
also encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking an
active role in emergency preparedness projects.
