Federal CERT Training:

Here you can find resources, training and information about the CERT Program. CERT educates individuals 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.

Arizona CERT Training:

Community Emergency Response Team training is a Federal Emergency Management Agency initiative that educates citizens about the hazards  they face in their community and trains them in life safety and other emergency services skills. Following a disaster, these citizen-responders use their training as part of a neighborhood or workplace team to help others when emergency services providers are overwhelmed or not immediately available. CERT members provide immediate assistance to victims in their area, organize other volunteers who have not had training, and collect disaster information that will assist emergency workers with prioritization and allocation of resources when they arrive.
