The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program educates volunteers about disaster preparedness for the
hazards that may occur where they live.
CERT trains volunteers in basic disaster response skills, such as:
The CERT program offers a consistent, nationwide approach to volunteer training and organization that professional
responders can rely on during disaster situations, allowing them to focus on more complex tasks.
A Teen CERT program can support a school’s emergency operations plan and assist emergency services personnel, thus providing valuable surge capacity to local first responders when needed.
A Workplace CERT program can support and enhance existing capabilities, and CERT volunteers can participate in efforts to increase the preparedness and resilience of the workplace and community.
A Campus CERT program can support and enhance existing capabilities and CERT volunteers can participate in efforts to increase the preparedness and resilience of the on-campus community.
