Final Regional Fire Services Study (November 23, 2009)
CERT Training Program
Training program that teaches the basic Community Emergency Response Team
C ommunity Emergency Response Team (C.E.R.T.) is made up of volunteers that have completed a course of study outlined by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS). These volunteers would then help public safety organizations within the community if a disaster strikes. On-going training for the volunteers will also be offered to keep them prepared.
Following a major disaster, first responders who provide fire and medical services may not be able to meet the demand for these services. Factors such as number of victims, communication failures, and road blockages can prevent people from accessing emergency services they have come to expect at a moment's notice through 911. People will have to rely on each other for help in order to meet their immediate life saving and life sustaining needs. This training will help those citizens and their neighbors to help themselves and neighborhood.
