Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program trains people to be better prepared to respond to emergency situations in their communities.

When emergencies happen, CERT members can give critical support to first responders, provide immediate assistance to victims, and organize spontaneous volunteers at a disaster site. CERT members can also help with non-emergency projects that help improve the safety of the community.
