Community Emergency Response Team

Community Emergency Response Teams (C.E.R.T.) are made up of volunteers that have completed a course of study outlined by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). These volunteers would then help public safety organizations within the community if a disaster strikes and local public safety agencies such as fire and police departments are overwhelmed.
