The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program helps train people to be better prepared to respond to emergency situations in their communities. When emergencies happen, CERT members can give critical support to first responders, provide immediate assistance to victims, and organize spontaneous volunteers at a disaster site.
CERT members can also help with non-emergency projects that help improve the safety of the community. CERT members also train the community in Emergency Preparedness, what they need to do and have to prepare for an emergency. CERT is a nationwide initiative.
CERT TRAINING IS BEING SCHEDULED TO BEGIN ON THE FIRST OR SECOND WEEK IN OCTOBER. TRAINING WILL BE HELD ON MONDAY EVENINGS BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 6:30 PM TO 9:00 PM. IN ORDER TO QUALIFY, YOU MUST BE A PLAINFIELD RFESIDENT. .
