What is CERT?

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people 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 the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.

Alternative Communications
There are three main components to emergency communications:
  • 911 call processing and delivery through Public Safety Answering Points (PSAP) and call dispatch;
  • The Emergency Alert System; and
  • Radio and/or broadcast or cable television station news and updates.
All of these components must operate effectively in order to achieve a successful response to an emergency.

As an alternative to these primary emergency communication efforts Amateur Radio offers an alternative communications.
