Community Emergency Response Team training is a Federal Emergency Management Agency initiative that educates citizens about the hazards they face in their community and trains them in life safety and other emergency services skills. Following a disaster, these citizen-responders use their training as part of a neighborhood or workplace team to help others when emergency services providers areoverwhelmed or not immediately available. CERT members provide immediate assistance to victims in theirarea, organize other volunteers who have not had training, and collect disaster information that will assist emergency workers with prioritization and allocation of resources when they arrive.
