What is CERT?
Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) members prepare, organize and work together as a team to provide essential services to their community during and after a disaster.
Each City has its own organized CERT program. CERTs strengthen neighborhood resiliency and play a vital role in their City’s disaster response efforts.
CERT Academy Training
Skills taught include organizing resources, medical operations, basic search & rescue, hazardous materials, terrorism awareness, how to use a fire extinguisher and damage assessment.
Participants must attend all in-person and online classes, including participation in the final skills day to receive a CERT course completion certificate.
Classes include both in-person and online evening classes, with a final in-person Saturday skills session and graduation ceremony. The fee of $35 includes basic safety equipment.
