CERT is a training program that prepares you to help yourself, your family, and your neighbors in the event of a disaster.  During an incident, emergency service personnel may not be able to reach everyone right away.  By getting trained in CERT, you will have the skills to help emergency responders save lives and protect property.  

As a member of a CERT team, you can respond to disasters, participate in drills and exercises, and take additional training.  CERT teams are known and trusted resources to emergency responders and their communities.  The role of a CERT volunteer is to help others until trained emergency personnel arrive.

CERT training takes about 20 hours to complete and provides critical skills in emergency preparedness and response.
