Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

CERT is a fun and exciting team to be a member of. CERT teams are found all over the United States and regularly assist first responders in emergencies. Any community, school, business, or public entity can form CERT teams. This program is a rewarding and empowering system that gives its members skills they can use anywhere, not just emergencies.

The lead instructor, Richard Ferrell has trained over 1000 CERT members and has been a CERT instructor for 10 years. The classes are hands on, fun, and fast paced. You even get a backpack full of response gear!

  • Disaster Preparedness: Addresses hazards specific to the community. Materials cover actions that participants and their families take before, during and after a disaster as well as an overview of CERT and local laws governing volunteers.

  • Fire Suppression: Covers fire chemistry, hazardous materials, fire hazards and fire suppression strategies. However, the thrust of this session is the safe use of fire extinguishers, controlling utilities and extinguishing a small fire.

  • Medical Operations Part I: Participants practice diagnosing and treating airway obstruction, bleeding and shock by using simple triage and rapid treatment techniques.

  • Medical Operations Part II: Covers evaluating patients by doing a head to toe assessment, establishing a medical treatment area and performing basic first aid.

  • Light Search and Rescue Operations: Participants learn about search and rescue planning, size-up, search techniques, rescue techniques and rescuer safety.

  • Psychology and Team Organization: Covers signs and symptoms that might be experienced by the disaster victim and workers, and addresses CERT organization and management.

  • Course Review and Disaster Simulation: Participants review and practice the skills that they have learned during the previous six sessions in a disaster activity.

Cost varies on the number of participants, and large groups receive a significant discount. The Basic CERT Academy is 3 days of instruction and includes backpacks full of response gear that all participants get to keep.
