The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) provides training in
emergency preparedness and basic response techniques enabling citizens to
take a more active role in personal and public safety.
Each CERT member completes 24 hours of training on disaster preparedness,
basic disaster medical operations, fire safety, light search and rescue, and
other essential topics. The training also includes a disaster simulation in
which participants practice skills they learned throughout the course. In
the event of an emergency, CERT members can provide immediate assistance to
victims, assist in organizing spontaneous volunteers at a disaster site and
provide critical support to first responders.
CERT training is available to anyone who lives or works in Sedgwick
County and is at least 18 years old.
Training is offered free of charge by the Sedgwick County Division of
Public Safety. Upon training completion, each CERT member will receive a
CERT backpack with various disaster response materials.
