Community Emergency Response Team (C.E.R.T.)

Are you a private citizen with a desire to develop the skills and knowledge required to prepare for and respond to a disaster? If so, sign up today!

Community-based preparedness planning allows you to help yourself, your family, and your neighbors in the event of a catastrophic disaster. Because emergency services personnel will not be able to help everyone immediately, you can make a difference by participating in community training to save lives and protect property.

This specialized training covers:

  • Disaster Preparedness
  • Fire Safety
  • Disaster Medical Operations
  • Light Search And Rescue Operations
  • CERT Organization
  • Disaster Psychology
  • Terrorism and CERT
  • Disaster Simulation
