Community education, preparedness and self-reliance
are paramount to the overall success of any
Community's ability to respond and recover effectively in
time of crisis.

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!

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, Disaster Management Area E established the Regional Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training program. 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.

The Area E CERT Regional program supports individual Area E Cities' CERT programs by hosting

  Quarterly 
CERT Skill Module training refreshers, specialized skill training classes, an annual exercise, and special events specifically for Area E CERT groups at NO COST.  

 ADVANCED CERT (ACERT) *California Disaster Corps Eligibility    

ACERT members participate as an organized volunteer emergency response team.  ACERT supplements participating City's Emergency Response Team and City Emergency Services Agencies in times of disaster and / or emergency situations.

 ACERT Members volunteer as Disaster Service Workers and agree to be available on a 24-hour call out list; agree to respond to a pre-established Emergency Response Area / Command Post when activated; assist City emergency response teams and emergency services agencies as directed; and participate in other city, county, and state emergency activations as representatives of the Area E Regional CERT Call-Out team. ACERT members participate in ongoing and expanded emergency response training.

 If you are interested in becoming a member of the ACERT program and participating in the Area E Regional CERT Call-Out team, contact your assigned CERT Coordinator and ask them more about the ACERT program. ***Not all CERT groups participate in the ACERT program***

ACERT also provides members with eligibility to participate in
the NEW *California Disaster Corps Program.
