Community Emergency Response Team, or CERT, is a free training and volunteer program administered through the county Fire and EMS Department. The training prepares residents to help themselves, their families, and their neighbors in the event of a disaster in their community. Through CERT, residents can learn about disaster preparedness and receive training in basic disaster response and life-saving skills such as fire safety, light search and rescue, and disaster medical operations. With this training, graduates of the program can provide critical support by giving immediate assistance to victims before first responders arrive on scene.
Age Restrictions: Anyone 18 years or older can attend the training.
