About EastTex CERT
Each year, many North Texas communities are rocked by severe weather, such as tornadoes, floods or flash floods, winter storms, or by man- made disasters. The damage caused by disasters effect everyone. Disasters may severely restrict and overwhelm emergency response resources, communications, transportation, and utilities; and leave individuals and neighborhoods cut off from outside emergency support.
Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT) are trained to take care of themselves and then help others in their communities for the first three days following a disaster.
