Community Emergency Response Team

Join Your Community Emergency Response Team. The 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.

About CERTů

The Federal Emergency Management Agency using the model created by the Los Angeles City Fire Department beganpromoting nationwide implementation ofthe Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) concept in 1994. Since then, CERT's have been established in hundreds of communities in the U.S. Black Jack Fire Protection District is dedicated to prepare their community that they serve by providing CERT training. In addition this training promotes a partnering effort between our emergency services personnel and our citizens.

If a disastrous event overwhelms or delays the emergency services personnel, CERT members can assist others by applying the basic response and organizational skills that they learned during training.These skills can help save and sustain lives following a disaster until help arrives. CERT skills also apply to daily emergencies.

CERT members will have the opportunityto maintain and refine their skills by participating in exercises and activities.They can attend supplemental training that will be hosted through your Fire ProtectionDistrict periodically. This will keepmembers fresh on skills learned in the initialtraining and further their skill base.
