Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

Creating skilled volunteers to assist professionals in emergency response.

Dallas CERT Training

The CERT program educates volunteers about disaster preparedness for the hazards that may occur where they live, trainingĀ volunteers in basic disaster response skills, such as:

  • Fire safety
  • Light search and rescue
  • Team organization
  • Disaster medical operations


The CERT program offers a consistent, nationwide approach to volunteer training and organization that professional responders can rely on during disaster situations, allowing them to focus on more complex tasks.
