Would you like to assist first responders during or following a disaster? Learn how to help others that were injured? You can. Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) volunteers assist first responders during emergency situations, staff first aid stations at community events, and help educate the community about emergency preparedness. CERT volunteers must complete an eight-week training session (class is held one night per week) and must pass a background check. The next CERT training class takes place in March 2018.
