If an earthquake or other major disaster struck your neighborhood, would you be willing to help rescue people and provide basic first aid until police, fire and EMS personnel arrive?
If so, then join the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

The 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.

Utilizing the training learned in the classroom and exercises, CERT members can assist 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.
