What it is:
CERT is an acronym for Community Emergency Response Team, a program that was created in response to President Bush’s call for citizen volunteers in the community. This program provides training to members of the public to assist First Responders when natural or accidental disasters occur in their community.
From the website: People naturally respond to others in need…. One goal of the CERT program is to help respond effectively and efficiently without placing themselves in unnecessary danger.
