Community Emergency Response Team
The Community Emergency Response Team Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.
It is the mission of the Weber County CERT Council to support and further the CERT program throughout the County by coordinating, unifying, and extending training to the citizens of Weber County enabling them to prepare today for tomorrow's emergencies.
It is the vision of the Weber County CERT Council, that all jurisdictions in the County have CERT programs and become active members of the Council. In this manner, the Council members can draw from each other's strengths to better prepare their own communities and support the program in a wholistic approach rather than splintered efforts. CERT Council members would be able to centralize and combine many individual efforts and thus enjoy greater benefits to the community through cooperation and collaboration
Weber County Emergency Management is responsible for overseeing the Weber County CERT Council and providing initial training to CERT Volunteers within Weber County. For more information on the initial CERT course and to register for upcoming courses go HERE
