Emergency Response Team Training Resource for Individuals and Communities

As individuals face the reality that in the event of a disaster, they may well have to rely on each other for help in order to meet their immediate lifesaving and life sustaining needs, the U.S. government has taken action to prepare its citizens for such an eventuality.

That action is best expressed and encompassed in the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training programs located throughout the United States, which do the following:

  1. Present citizens the facts about what to expect following a major disaster in terms of immediate services,
  2. Give the message about their responsibility for mitigation and preparedness,
  3. Train them in needed lifesaving skills with emphasis on decision making skills, rescuer safety, and doing the greatest good for the greatest number,
  4. Organize teams so that they are an extension of first responder services offering immediate help to victims until professional services arrive.

CERT is about 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 citizens will be initially on their own and their actions can make a difference. Through training, citizens can manage utilities and put out small fires; treat the three killers by opening airways, controlling bleeding, and treating for shock; provide basic medical aid; search for and rescue victims safely; and organize themselves and spontaneous volunteers to be effective.
