When danger calls, the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is ready to answer. As a member of CERT, you'll gain the skill and confidence to help others in situations when professional responders can't get there immediately. The skills you learn can make a world of difference in a crisis. CERT trains members in basic disaster response skills including:
- fire safety
- light search and rescue
- team organization
- disaster medical operations
Also, by helping the community stay prepared for anything that could happen, CERT members provide a strong source of support for emergency response agencies.
