The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program educates volunteers about disaster preparedness for the 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. CERT offers a consistent, nationwide approach to volunteer training and organization that professional responders can rely on during disaster situations, which allows them to focus on more complex tasks. Through CERT, the capabilities to prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters is built and enhanced. Partner sites to Ready.gov are Office of the Inspector General, Whitehouse.gov, DHS.gov, FEMA.gov, USA.gov
Preparedness is the first phase of the Emergency Management Cycle. Just like individuals and families must make preparations for potential dangers and threats, so too, disaster workers prepare by participating in training classes. Courses are designed with adult learners in mind that emphasize group interaction and cooperative learning. Training courses include classes in incident management, canteen operations, food service, emotional and spiritual care as well as basic first aid and CPR training.
