Make a difference with your role in emergency services.
Take an active role in emergency preparedness for your home, your neighborhood, your workplace, and your community. Learn to solve problems, improve communities, connect with others, and save lives. Disaster preparedness training is critical to ensuring that communities are ready to respond to natural disasters such as tornados, floods, or manmade threats such as terrorism and public health threats. Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training topics include setting up treatment areas, HAZMAT and fire safety, light search and rescue, disaster psychology, medical techniques, and more. Beyond assisting in critical emergencies, CERT members are encouraged to take an active role in ongoing emergency preparedness projects within their communities. Attendees conclude by participating in a mock disaster. Upon successful completion attendees receive a FEMA Certificate of Graduation. Click here to learn more.
