Preparing for a Disaster

Does your community have enough help if a disaster occurs today? Would you like help from the citizens of your community in the event of a disaster until you are able to respond? The Department of Public Safety would like to help your community be better prepared for disasters.

Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT)

CERT is ordinary citizens understanding the basics of disaster preparedness - Neighbors helping neighbors in time of need.


Teams are limited to ten in a class. You supply the names and we provide the free training. Anybody can be CERT trained – A group of your neighbors, church groups, civic organizations, etc. To organize a CERT training program contact Director Mertz.
