Become a CERT member, and learn how to help yourself, your family and neighbors in the event of a large-scale emergency or disaster.
The Office of Emergency Management hosts a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training on a regular basis. In this training, CERT members will learn how to be self-sufficient for 72 hours following a major emergency or disaster.
CERT members are volunteers who others in the community will rely on to meet their immediate life-saving and life-sustaining needs. Team members will also learn how to provide critical support to professional first responders, assistance to disaster victims, and how to spontaneously organize volunteers at disaster sites.
For more information on the CERT training program, contact Alyson Barrow, Assistant Emergency Management Coordinator, at (972) 721-2183 or CERT@cityofirving.org.
