Mission Statement

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is an official emergency preparedness program of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

CERT's are formed by members of a neighborhood or workplace who wants to be better prepared for the hazards that threaten their communities. The course benifits anyone who tales it by being better prepared to respond to and cope with the aftermath of natural or manmade disasters.

Each CERT is organized and trained and in accordance with standard operating procedures developed by the sponsoring agency, its members select a team leader and an alternate and identify a meeting location, or staging area, to be used in the event of a disaster.

Description

Navarre CERT can provide an effective first-response capability. Trained CERT volunteers fan out within their assigned areas, extinguishing small fires, turning off natural gas inlets to damaged homes, perform light search and rescue, and render basic medical treatment. Trained volunteers also offer an important potential workforce to service organizations in non hazardous functions such as shelter support, crowd control, and evacuation.
