Estero Bay CERT


FAQ – Are there Age or Physical requirements?

Q: Who can take the CERT training?
   A: All residents of the Estero Bay Area, who are of 18 years or older are eligible to participate in the CERT Training.

Q: What if I have concerns about my age or my physical ability?
   A: There are many jobs within a CERT for someone who wants to be involved and help. Following a disaster, CERT members are needed for documentation, comforting others, logistics, etc. Non-disaster related team activities may include keeping databases, developing a website, writing a newsletter, planning activities, helping with special events and organizing exercises and activities. During CERT classroom training, if one has a concern about doing a skill like lifting, just let the instructor know. You can learn from watching. We would like everyone who wants to go through the training to have an opportunity to participate and learn the skills. CERT educates participants about local hazards and trains them in skills that are useful during disaster and life’s everyday emergencies.
