Community Emergency Response Team
Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)…Because You Can’t Predict, But You
Wentzville CERT is part of a national program that equips ordinary citizens to be able to fill the gap between when a disaster strikes and the arrival of first responders.
CERT training provides basic survival and rescue skills that help you prepare for, respond to, and recover from an emergency or disaster.
As a member of CERT, you can participate in drills and exercises, take additional training, and volunteer at community events. As part of an activated team, you will be ready to deliver immediate assistance to victims, mobilize local resources, organize emergency communications and support first responders.
