Community Emergency Response Team (C.E.R.T.)

Overview

C.E.R.T. is about readiness, people helping people, rescuer safety and doing the greatest good for the greatest number. C.E.R.T. is a positive and realistic approach to emergency and disaster situations where citizens will initially be on their own and their actions can make a difference.
