The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people 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.
