CERT : What is it and Why do I want to know?





This page is updated periodically as more local Bay Area CERT groups are formed, if your location is not listed below, check CERT's main site to see if your location has one close by.

CERTThe Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.

If there is no local CERT Team in your neighborhood, you can attend CERT Training and form one, See also Planning Help
