This course, provided by TEEX, examines the role of public information in managing an all-hazards incident and provides practical training in crisis communication techniques.

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Training

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Training is a FREE program to train citizens from the community who form teams in geographical areas of the county, train together on a regular basis, and work together during large scale disasters to assist their neighborhood and surrounding areas affected.

Citizens in the community are trained on disaster preparedness, how to cut off utilities, put out small fires, administer disaster first aid, safely search for and rescue victims, organize themselves and collect disaster intelligence to support first responder efforts. Volunteers must enroll in an initial 16 hour instructional course that is taught at a convenient location in the community. Once citizens successfully complete the initial 16 hour course, they then continue training with a CERT established. You can either start your own CERT in your area, or you can join one in your area. Visit our CERT page for more information.

Contact Angela Roscoe or Heidi Mariscal to register via email for CERT Training or you can call at 615-862-8530.
