Become a member of a Community Emergency Response Team
and make a difference in the event of a disaster. The Community Emergency Response Team Program (CERT) is an entirely civilian and volunteer force that provides residents and businesses with skills to become self-reliant and to assist others during disasters. Trained by professional firefighters, EMS personnel and other emergency responders, CERT educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills.
