What is CERT?

CERT training is designed to prepare you to help yourself and others in the event of a catastrophic disaster. In a major disaster or emergency, professional emergency responders will not be able to help everyone immediately. Those resources will likely be overwhelmed. CERT training covers basic skills that are important to know in a disaster when emergency services are not available or are delayed. CERTs respond in the time immediately after a disaster. CERT is a bridge between the event and the arrival of professional responders.
