COMMUNITY EMERGENCY RESPONSE TEAM (CERT)
The Federal Emergency Management Agency, a component of the Department of Homeland Security, has promoted the use of the Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT) since 1994. These teams of volunteers are designed to help out when first responders are unable to respond to all the needs of the community.
CERT educates individuals about disaster preparedness, and offers a consistent, nationwide approach to volunteer training in basic response skills that professional responders can rely on during disaster situations, which allows them to focus on more complex tasks.
We are a CERT Unit in training that will be specialized with trained volunteers working with or without dogs to support emergency personnel to search and rescue victims.
Our CERT team program offers training in basic response skills, such as fire safety and disaster medical operations. With proper CERT training, you can help protect your family, neighbors and co-workers if a disaster strikes.
Our goal is to create and maintain an active Technical Rescue K9 Team and a CERT team specifically trained to assist with land and water searches, as well as natural or man-made disasters in which people may be trapped or missing.
