The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people
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 the
training learned in the classroom and during
exercises, CERT members can assist others in their
workplace following an event when professional responders are not
to help. CERT members also are encouraged to
support emergency response agencies by taking a more
active role in
emergency preparedness projects in their community.
