Gloucester’s Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is a training program that prepares you to help yourself, your family, and your neighbors in the event of a disaster. During an incident, emergency service personnel may not be able to reach everyone right away. By being trained in CERT, you will have the skills to help emergency responders save lives and protect property.
As a member of a CERT team, you can be called on to help in disasters and planned events, participate in drills and exercises, and take additional training. CERT teams are known and trusted resources to emergency responders and their communities.
