This site is "Of CERT, By CERT, and For CERT Graduates." While we work closely with the Fremont Fire Department, we who created this site and maintain it are CERT graduates and volunteers. We are not an official part of the Fremont Fire Department. Our goal is to provide information, a forum for discussion, and a point of contact between Community Emergency Response Teams and CERT members everywhere.
Local government prepares for everyday emergencies. However, during a disaster, the number and scope of incidents can overwhelm conventional emergency services. The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program is an all-risk, all-hazard training. This valuable course is designed to help you protect yourself, your family, your neighbors and your neighborhood in an emergency situation.
CERT is a positive and realistic approach to emergency and disaster situations where citizens may initially be on their own and their actions can make a difference. While people will respond to others in need without the training, one goal of the CERT program is to help them do so effectively and efficiently without placing themselves in unnecessary danger.
