Red River CERT

The Red River Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program educates individuals about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact our community and trains them in basic disaster response skills. These skills include:

  • Fire safety
  • Search and rescue
  • Team organization
  • Disaster medical operations

Using training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT volunteers can assist others in their community following a disaster when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT volunteers are also encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking an active role in emergency preparedness projects.
