Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training involves approximately 20 hours of free training that will better prepare individuals to deal with disasters and emergencies when local first responders may be overwhelmed. Training includes Disaster Preparedness, Disaster Psychology, CERT Organization, Terrorism, Light Search & Rescue, Medical I & II, Fire Safety, Review and Final Simulation. CERTs can then become part of the emergency response capability for their area as a team member. All segments are required for certification. Background checks required.

Continuing Education classes and team meetings keep CERT members up-to-date on their skills.

Certified CERTS also help with public events: Silver Bells in the City, Common Ground, Chili Cookoff, Safety Patrol Picnic, community drills/exercises, and more.
