CERT – Community Emergency Response Teams


The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program educates volunteers about disaster preparedness for the hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, disaster psychology, team organization, and disaster medical operations. CERT volunteers can assist others following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. Whether interested in learning to take care of themselves and their family, help their neighbors, and/or support their community, the CERT Basic Training program educates volunteers of all ages and backgrounds, such as stay-at-home parents, engineers, students, and seniors.  Through CERT, the capabilities to prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters is built and enhanced.

Thank You

Interest. Dedication. Enthusiasm. Perseverence. These are words I use to describe the CERT, Clark County, WA volunteers. As our program has re-organized and re-structured itself over the past few years, you have continued to show up, participate, offer ideas, and support each other and our purpose. You continue to help educate your family, friends, and neighbors on the importance of emergency preparedness, understanding the potential impact a disaster or major event could have on our community. As we grow our program, learn new skills, and take on additional responsibilities as a team, I look forward to continuing our work together. Thank you for being a part of CERT, Clark County, WA. You are appreciated!
