CERT stands for Community Emergency Response Team. CERT members are trained to help themselves, their families and those around them after a disaster. Upon graduation, CERTs will be invited to participate in additional training, exercises and contribute to community preparedness efforts through outreach opportunities.
You can fill out the online registration form. If we do not currently have a class scheduled, check the “notify me” box on the registration form to receive an alert when a class becomes open.
To record your volunteer and training hours, use the online record volunteer hours form.
If you have moved or changed your contact info, please email all updates to the CERT Team.
The CERT program is free.
Each CERT course is comprised of 8 classes that last 3.5 hours each. Evening classes are held either one or two nights per week. Morning classes are one morning per week. The specific day(s) of the week are chosen based on instructor availability but will be shown on each program schedule as it is released.
The CERT course is a comprehensive program where skills and topics build upon each other. We allow for 2 absences to minimize the material a participant misses. Those classes can be made up during a different course offering. All classes must be made up within 1 year. If a participant registers and realizes he or she cannot attend regularly, we ask that you notify the program coordinator as soon as possible and register again for a future course that will better fit the participant's schedule. Participants will be able to take their backpack and certificate home after all classes are completed.
The location of each program varies and will be displayed on each course schedule as they are released.
