 Are you ready to:

  • Learn about the hazards in your area?
  • Help others in the event of an emergency or natural disaster?
  • If you are a teen, become a leader in your school?

CERT members answer, "Yes!", and here is why:

CERT training teaches you readiness and response skills. Hands-on practice and realistic exercises prepare you for the unexpected in your community. Newly taught leadership skills empower you to safely respond to an emergency and assist victims without endangering yourself or others. You'll be equipped with skills that last a lifetime. Learn more about CERT Training - Here you can take the IS-317 training, “Introduction to CERT”. This independent study web-based training is interactive and will introduce you to CERT skills before you take the classroom training.
