What is CERT?

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is a group of resident volunteers who have received training in the basics of:
  • Disaster preparedness
  • Fire Safety
  • Disaster medical operations
  • Light search and rescue
  • Terrorism response
Although not included in the CERT training, some of our members are certified for CPR and/or HAM radio operation.
The primary function of CERT is to provide emergency response in our community for disasters such as hurricanes and tsunamis until such time as the professional emergency First Responders arrive on the scene.  CERT is not intended to be a permanent substitute for fire, police or ambulance services. Each CERT members is required to tend to his/her own famliy and home first before reporting for community assistance.
