CERT Mission Statement
Our Mission is to serve and safeguard our citizens and surrounding communities through a professional, efficient and effective system of volunteer services, which protect life, environment and property
Our Vision is to support first responders with trained volunteers that organize themselves at the disaster site and provide immediate assistance to victims. We are committed to provide the best public service through education training and volunteering
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 can assist others in their neighborhood - workplace or surrounding communities when professional responders are not immediately available. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects and community assistance in their communities.
