THE FOLLOWING IS A LITTLE INFO. ON CERT.....
NYC CERTs are groups of neighborhood and community-based volunteers
that undergo an intensive, 11-week training program in disaster
preparedness and basic response skills. Topics include fire safety,
search and rescue, and disaster medical operations. After completing
training, teams support their local communities by assisting the
various City agencies that prepare for and respond to disasters.
Emergency services personnel are the best equipped to respond to
emergencies. However, following a catastrophic disaster, NYC CERTs
can handle initial emergency recovery while they wait for
professional first responders.
During non-emergency situations, NYC CERTs educate their communities
on emergency preparedness.
CERT members were active as they help recovery efforts after the
midtown crane collapse.
