What is CERT (Community Emergency Response Team)?
As a CERT volunteer, you’ll have the opportunity to make a real difference in your community during emergencies by providing essential support services, such as checking on neighbors, distributing important information, and assisting with traffic and crowd management. Plus, you’ll receive valuable training and be part of a team of dedicated volunteers working together to help those in need. Don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity to make a positive impact!
These teams play a vital role in helping our community during times of disaster and emergencies, as well as providing support for community events like parades, festivals, and 5Ks. This is a great opportunity for families to volunteer together as young people ages 12 and older can participate with a parent or guardian.
Gain the necessary skills to be prepared to take care of yourself, your family, your neighbors, and others in your community. Learn how to be self-sufficient and ready to help others in times of need. Basic CERT supplies are provided!
