Community Emergency Response Team

What is C.E.R.T.

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program educates volunteers about disaster preparedness and trains them in basic disaster response skills. These skills include fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using this training, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help.


The Los Angeles City Fire Department developed and implemented the CERT concept in 1985. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) adopted and expanded the program nationally.
