Mission Statement

The Anne Arundel-Annapolis Community Emergency Response Team (AAACERT) volunteers train to support our first responders in disasters and emergencies, and educate the public on emergency preparedness. We educate people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and train them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.

Description

Sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, CERT educates individuals 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. Using training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT volunteers can assist others in their community following a disaster when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT volunteers are also encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking an active role in emergency preparedness projects.
