Neighbors Helping Neighbors--
The Community Emergency Response Team
(CERT) program trains people to be prepared for emergency situations in
their community and neighborhood. CERT members provide immediate
assistance to victims, collect disaster information to support first
responder efforts, and provide that first neighborhood help in the
immediate hours following a major emergency. CERT is families helping
themselves and neighbors helping neighbors to prepare, respond, and
recover in their own neighborhood.
South Trail Fire & Rescue District personnel are now training volunteers
to serve on Community Emergency Response Teams in their own neighborhoods.
