Delaware County

Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)


The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates citizens about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their community and teaches them basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. The Delaware County CERT is a shared entity between all 49 municipalities and the county.  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 first responders are not immediately available.  CERT members are also encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking an active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.”
