What is CERT?

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training provides citizens with an opportunity to learn basic emergency response skills to assist themselves, their friends and family, and/or their neighborhoods in case of an emergency.  

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 Mission:

The Mesa CERT program's mission is to ensure that disaster preparedness education and information is made available to the residents of Mesa through training and community outreach programs. Our purpose is to increase the knowledge and preparedness of Mesa's residents by teaching them how to deal with natural or man-made disasters up to 72 hours or until help arrives to assist them.
What will I learn?

How do I get trained?
