why CERT


individual preparedness mitigates the impact of disasters


CERT+ Trainers and Coordinators believe in the value of CERT training for each citizen, family, neighborhood and community. We have seen that individual preparedness mitigates the impact of a disaster by reducing casualties, supporting response, speeding recovery and lessening the burden on local government.

CERT is about readiness, people helping people, rescuer safety and doing the greatest good for the greatest number.  It is a  realistic approach to disaster situations where the actions of average citizens can make a positive difference.  Regardless of personal limitations, there is a role for everyone in CERT. 

While CERT graduates cannot and do not replace local professional responders, the training reduces the number of citizens requiring help in a disaster and puts them in a better position to communicate their status and needs when professional help does arrive.
