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.

Launched in February 2003, Ready is a national public service advertising (PSA) campaign designed to educate and empower Americans to prepare for and respond to emergencies including natural and man-made disasters. The goal of the campaign is to get the public involved and ultimately to increase the level of basic preparedness across the nation.
FEMA’s mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from and mitigate all hazards.
