What is CERT and why is it needed?

Each year a number of communities and businesses fall victim to some disaster. This may be in the form of an earthquake, hurricane, tornado, blizzard, flood or “man-made” disasters.

The damage caused by natural and “man-made” disasters such as this effect all elements of society and government. Catastrophic events:

  • severely restrict and overwhelm emergency response resources, communications, transportation, and utilities.

  • leave many individuals and neighborhoods cut off from outside support.

When we hear about this or see it on the news, it always seems to be happening to someone else but, what if it were to happen to you and your neighborhood?
