What is CERT?

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program through FEMA, educates volunteers about disaster preparedness for the hazards that may impact Russell County and trains them in basic disaster response skills. CERT offers a consistent, nationwide approach to volunteer training and organization that professional responders can rely on during disaster situations, which allows them to focus on more complex tasks. Through CERT, the capabilities to prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters is built and enhanced.
