Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training teaches
skills that people can use to safely help their neighbors during a disaster
while waiting for emergency responders such as Police, Fire or Public Works.
Through training, citizens can manage utilities and put out small fires;
search for and rescue victims safely; and organize themselves and spontaneous
volunteers to be effective. They will also be trained in life saving skills
with emphasis on decision making, rescuer safety, and doing the greatest good
for the greatest number. To learn more, visit Emergency Management
