Emergency Management and first responders constantly remind us that after a disaster, They may not be able to get to you for hours, days or perhaps weeks. CERT (Community Emergency Response Training) is a nationwide program to train residents to help one another until professional help arrives. CERT is federally funded through grants so there is no cost to participants.
