What is CERT?

 CERT stands for Community Emergency Response Team. These are fellow citizens who have taken the time to go through a 24 hour course that teaches both disaster concepts and hands-on response skills. Topics covered include:

  • Small fire suppression
  • Light search and rescue
  • Light extrication
  • Basic disaster psychology
  • Basic first aid
  • Basic triage
  • and more

You can learn more about the CERT program nationally here. You can also review the CERT class material online, as an independent study course, available here. Be advised: completing the online course does not certify you to be a CERT member. You must go through the classroom instruction in order to be on a CERT team, but the online course will give you a great foundation on which to learn.

If you would be interested in participating in a CERT class, or feel that you have a group or organization that would be interested in helping their community during a disaster, contact Emergency Management Coordinator Rich Ochs for more information.
