The benefits of starting a CERT include free emergency preparedness training, immediate emergency response services after a disaster, and increased community involvement. As an added bonus, CERT members receive educational materials, CERT equipment (as available), and a certificate of completion.
CERT provides community members with skills such as disaster preparedness, fire safety, basic medical operations, light search and rescue, team organization, and more. Additionally, the Orange County CERT in partnership with Orange County Emergency Services offers regular advanced training opportunities for those who have already completed CERT Basic Training.
The next CERT Basic Training will be in the Spring of 2023.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any registration or course questions.
Other training events and opportunities beyond Orange County can be found on the North Carolina CERT Calendar.
