Community Emergency Response Team

If a disCERT Logo - rectangle w/ black shadow of ground and houses, CERT in green, blue and white backgroundaster or terrorism incident occurs in your community, local government and local responders try to help you, but you need to be prepared as well.

Community Emergency Response Teams (CERTs) consist of citizens who are trained to take care of themselves and their families first, then help others in their community immediately following disasters.

The program is offered to citizens who desire the skills and knowledge required to prepare for and respond to disasters. The program consists of 32 hours of training typically held over nine weeks. Classes are taught by emergency responders from our community.

If you are interested in joining CERT, please review the information tabs, review this CERT On Boarding Document (PDF), and then if you are still interested complete and submit the CERT application (PDF) according to the directions on the application and we will contact you when we schedule the next Basic Training.

If you would like to attend the next CERT Basic Training, but not become a credentialed CERT member, we would love to have you! Please monitor this page, or any of NC Emergency Management's social media accounts, for announcements regarding our next Basic Training Course.
