We take you behind the scenes to see how everyday citizens are training to be ready when disasters strike. It’s called Community Emergency Response Teams, or CERT, and each local program trains community members in basic disaster response skills, such as small fire suppression, light search and rescue, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help.
