CERT - Who are We?
Friends, neighbors, co-workers, and trained professionals who volunteer their valuable time and resources to make a difference in their workplace and communities. These team members have participated in The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training program and have been trained to be prepared to respond to emergency situations in the workplace and their communities. When emergencies happen, CERT members give critical support to first responders, provide immediate assistance to victims, and organize spontaneous volunteers at a disaster site. CERT members can also help with non-emergency projects that help improve the safety of the workplace and their community. CERT is a nationwide initiative.
