We’re restarting the Community Emergency Response Team in Emigration Metro Township, and we need volunteers from each and every canyon neighborhood. A CERT is a group of neighbors who organize and train together to provide basic emergency services for their community. A CERT supports professional first responders in the event of earthquake, fire, flood, and man-made disaster. It provides damage assessment, communications, light search and rescue, and basic first aid. When large events overwhelm professional emergency services, CERTs are how communities self-rescue until help arrives in force.
Joining a CERT is one of the very best ways to help your family and community prepare for emergency situations. Together with Salt Lake County Emergency Management we’re organizing training classes for both new team members and member-trainers, to begin as soon as possible.
