Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

cert_logoAbout CERT

CERT is an emergency preparedness program created to save lives and reduce property damage by training individuals to initiate mitigation activities before or immediately following an emergency.

In the event of a major disaster, sections of our community may be severely impacted. Should this happen, public safety professionals will be required to commit all available resources at their disposal to alleviate the emergency. The priorities of City personnel will be saving lives and focusing resources on the greatest number of people.

The protection of life and property before, during, and after a disaster is the responsibility of all of us.
