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.

CERT is a program of the US Citizen Corps which is coordinated nationally by the Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).   Find out more about the CERT program at www.citizencorps.gov/cert/
