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.

You can do your part by joining your EastTex Regional CERT and being a member of a trained team of citizen who want to help make their communities safer and more resilient.

The next G317 CERT initial training class is scheduled for February 9th and 16th.  This is a TWO day FEMA class being held at the Rockwall Sheriff’s Office, from 8:30am to 5pm.  Both days are required to complete the requirements for certification.
