What is CERT?
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program helps train citizens to be better prepared and respond to emergency situations.
When emergencies happen, CERT members can give critical support to first responders, provide much needed assistance to victims, and organize local volunteers at a disaster site.
CERT members can also help with non- emergency projects and public service events that help improve the safety of the community.
