Presented by the Indianapolis Division of Homeland Security and
Rocky Ripple Emergency Management (RREM), the Community
Emergency Response Team (CERT) provides basic training in
disaster preparedness for residents, which increases the ability
of citizens to manage an extreme situation until first responders or
other assistance arrives.

Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises,
CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or
workplace following an event where professional responders are
not immediately available to help. You will be trained to provide
services such as supply distribution, fire safety, damage
assessment, neighbor well-checks, light search and rescue, and
disaster medical operations.

The full CERT curriculum is a 21-hour FEMA-based training
module comprised of eight classes, and completed over three Saturdays.
Fully-trained CERT members graduate with a certificate of
completion and are eligible for additional training. The last session
of the training is followed by a hands-on practical simulation.

If you want to join the course or have questions, contact Andy
Hazel at ajhaze77@gmail.com. Learn more at DHS online via
Twitter, Facebook or their website at www.indy.gov/dhs.
