What is CERT?
CERT stands for Community Emergency Response Team. The purpose of the FEMA Citizen Corps and CERT trainings is to create an army of trained volunteers, who are ready and able to help when disaster strikes, whether it is local, state wide or on a national level. After completion of the CERT course, volunteers will be trained in light search & rescue, basic first-aid, fire suppression, building assessment and other areas of disaster relief. Once certified, these-volunteers will be able to work in concert with first responders in disaster situations anywhere in the United States.
Isaiah 58:12 has trained and certified over 1,600 volunteers in the FEMA-Citizen Corps Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program. We have been a part of White House Faith-Based Disaster Initiatives, and have have built strong relationships with state, local and national emergency organizations and personnel.
This puts Isaiah 58:12 in a unique position to offer recognized assistance to emergency responders, and to physically and spiritually aid those in great need.
We encourage you to join us at our next CERT training (you can register up to the day before a training starts) or request to host a CERT at your local church.
