Community Emergency Response Team - CERT

Joe Olaciregui, CCP Coordinator
(775) 325-6928 I

CERT is disaster preparedness and response training. These classes are designed for the "general citizen" and will provide a broad base of training in disaster preparedness, light search and rescue, disaster medical, fire safety and many other aspects of preparation and response. No prior experience or training is necessary. Although many graduates do go on to join a CERT team, there is no requirement that you volunteer and we encourage everyone to attend the training. CERT volunteers help not only during disasters, but also assist professional responders during training and exercises. In CERT, there is a job for everyone.
