Community Emergency Response Team Course

Community Emergency Response Team CourseCERTTrained CERT members fill a vital role in the moments immediately following an emergency before first responders arrive on scene. Training involves basic disaster preparedness, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, triage and first aid, disaster psychology and terrorism awareness. CERT members also support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community, both in spreading the word about preparedness and in assisting agencies during response operations.
