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.

EastTex Regional CERT is a core program of the Rowlett Citizen Corps Council and co-sponsored by Rockwall County Office of Emergency Management. The RCCC is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to disaster preparedness and family safety initiatives. See our website at:
