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.
Eureka CERT is a proud member of the Meramec Valley Citizens Corps Council. The MVCCC is made up of 20 Fire & Police Departments, Emergency Management Agencies, and 911 Center. We share our trainings with our MVCCC partners and offer a wide range of programs throughout our group that are open to all CERT members.
To date, over 500 people have completed the 22 hour, 4 week training program through Eureka Emergency Management.
Anyone interested in taking this free training can register for the class by, contacting Eureka Police Department at 636-938-6600. Classes are open to anyone interested.
Eureka Emergency Management is a coordinated effort of the City of Eureka, Eureka Police Department, and Eureka Fire Protection District.
