CERT - The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.

Especially as Travellers and expats we need to know how to care for ourselves and others in the event of a natural or terrorist incident...

We are going to look at personal preparedness and equipment and how to get training and learn more about the systems in your community...

Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.
