Cert: cOMMUNITY EMERGENCY RESPONSE TEAM
Citizens have come to expect that when they report an emergency, help will arrive immediately. In the event of a major disaster, Lambertville's first responders will be overwhelmed with the number of individual emergencies. Not only will they need to respond to emergencies associated with the disaster, but they will also need to continue responding to their regular emergency calls. When emergency dispatchers receive a call, they prioritize it based on the level of immediate threat to life and property. It's important that citizens know how to be self-sufficient for a minimum of 72 hours, or until help does arrive.
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program helps train people to be better prepared to respond to emergency situations in their communities. When emergencies happen, CERT members can give critical support to first responders, provide immediate assistance to victims, and organize spontaneous volunteers at a disaster site. CERT members can also help with non-emergency projects that help improve the safety of the community. CERT is a nationwide initiative. Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) is a course that provides citizens with basic training in disaster preparedness and response. Through classroom learning and hands-on training, people will learn how to help themselves, their families, and their neighbors during and immediately following a disaster.
How Can I Join? To become a CERT member, you must be at least 18 years of age. If you want to volunteer your services and become trained to protect yourself and families from disasters; natural or man-made...... Become a CERT member. Lambertville needs you!
