Volunteers are trained to help communities mitigate disasters during the first 72 hours following a disaster when damaged roads, disrupted communications, high telephone call volume, etc.,may restrict access by professional emergency response teams. The purpose of CERT training is to provide citizens with the basic skills that they will need to handle virtually all of their own needs and then to respond to their community’s needs in the aftermath of a disaster.
