ADVANCED CERT

Starting in 2008 and having grown since, Advanced CERT offers our Basic CERT members an opportunity to assist their community without there being a major CERT activation. Since it's creation, numerous CERT members have taken training in Ham Radio, First Responder, Wilderness Search, Wide Area Search, Sheltering, Disaster Animal Response Team and much more.

Basic CERT members who are willing to make the time commitment can consider becoming part of Advanced CERT. CERT members often take training and choose to be involved in one or several of the five divisions of the Advanced CERT program:

BASIC CERT

Basic CERT is a 16-20 hour course intended to teach citizens the basics of emergency preparedness, fire suppression, first aid, light search and rescue, and much more.  Following the class it's our hope, should a major disaster occur overwhelming all first responders, these individuals will go out into their communities and assist those in need.  For those who are taking Basic CERT or would like to view the material, here is a link: Basic CERT Material
