The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates citizens about disaster 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 neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. Contact the CERT program coordinator for more details.
We are committed to building our community's disaster resiliency by implementing best practices in emergency management in order to aggressively reduce loss of life, limit damage to property and minimalize harm to the environment.
