View calendar for upcoming training and activities!
 

Community education and self-reliance is paramount to the overall success of any City's ability to respond and recover effectively in time of crisis. With the goal of community readiness.  The CERT program is about community readiness, people helping people, rescuer safety, and doing the greatest good for the greatest number. CERT is a positive and realistic approach to emergency and disaster situations where community members will be initially on their own and their actions can make a difference.

ACERT members participate in ongoing and expanded emergency response training.
