Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Training
Have you ever thought, “What would I do if a tornado struck my subdivision?” or “What
types of natural disasters can happen in St. Louis?” We have the answers! Community
Emergency Response Team Training (CERT) is a series of classes that prepares you to
help yourself, family, coworkers and neighbors in the event of a crisis in your community.
Through this interesting eight-week series of classes, participants learn about emergency
preparedness and receive training in basic response skills such as fire safety, team
organization, terrorism, disaster psychology, disaster preparedness, light search
and rescue and disaster medical operations. Through a partnership with local emergency
responders who are trained professionals and CERT trainers, you will learn life-saving
skills! Once the eight classes are completed, training will conclude with a full-scale
disaster exercise (off-site) that will put what you have learned to work in a real-life
tornado simulation. Upon successful completion of the training you will be able to
join a local St. Louis area CERT program to continue to support and help in times
where volunteers are needed. This training is free but registration is required.
