The purpose of the CERT program is to train ordinary citizens to care for themselves, their family, their neighbors and finally, their community, in case of an emergency. These volunteers will help to improve the response and preparedness of the community and the emergency services.

The CERT training and education experience forms a crucial link between the community and the professional emergency response teams.
