The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program helps train people to be better prepared to respond to emergency situations in their homes, workplaces, and communities.
CERT is made up of volunteers who have gone through a nine-module course that provides basic emergency response skills, particularly skills that would be of value during a disaster when first responder resources may be overwhelmed.
The Nine Module Course
The nine course modules include:
Fire Safety and Suppression
Incident Command System
Light Search and Rescue
Medical Operations 1 and 2
Terrorism and more
At the completion of the training, volunteers are given a chance to practice their skills during a disaster drill.
CERT's goal is to promote a safer home and community for you to live in. We are part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and are partnered with the Sanger Fire Department. For information on the CERT Program, please contact Sanger Fire at 559-875-6568.
