Following a major disaster, emergency workers who provide fire and medical services will not be able to meet the demand for these services. People will have to rely on each other for help in order to meet their immediate life saving needs.
After your initial training you will be notified of continuing education opportunities. These will allow you to meet others from the community who are trained in CERT as well as many disaster responders.
For more information or to sign up for CERT, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to learn more about CERT or find classes in your area, go to FEMA's CERT page.
