Goal of the Program:

The goal of the CERT program is to help the community to be self-sufficient in a disaster by developing multi-functional teams that are trained in basic skills.  After completing the program, you will be able to function as part of a team or as a leader of on-scene volunteers.

Goals of CERT:

  • To protect yourself first so that you will be able to help others.
  • To prepare your family and home to survive all types of disasters.
  • To assist family and neighbors during the time of a disaster.
  • To work as part of an emergency response team at work or in the community.

It is hoped that participants from all areas of the community will complete the training.  During the course participants will receive a disaster preparedness manual, a personal emergency supply kit and a Certificate of Completion.
