CERT Training prepares you to help yourself, your family, and your neighbors in the event of a catastrophic disaster.

Emergency personnel may not be able to help everyone immediately and you can make a difference by using CERT Training to save lives and protect property.

Through personal education, training and volunteer service, every individual can help make their community safer, stronger and better prepared to respond to the hazards of weather, terrorism, crime, public health issues, and disasters of all kinds.
