Hope Mills Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

We are looking for Volunteers to join our Team

What is CERT?

  The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program educates volunteers about disaster preparedness for the hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. CERT offers a consistent, nationwide approach to volunteer training and organization that professional responders can rely on during disaster situations, which allows them to focus on more complex tasks. 

Sign up for a CERT basic training class



Our next class will be  November 2nd, 3rd, and 4th at Hope Mills Fire Dept.

Who Should Take The CERT Basic Training?

EVERYONE!

The basic training class will teach you basic first aid, light search & rescue, basic fire suppression and how to be prepared for a disaster. If after taking the class you decide you want to do more, come join our Hope Mills CERT team. We train once a month at the Hope Mills Fire Dept. If a disaster occurs we can be deployed by Emergency Management to help with things like opening a shelter or PODS just to name a few. When there are no disasters we help in our community.  We can direct traffic at an event  man a first aid tent or just hand out water at a marathon. We  work with the Red Cross and the Fire Dept to install smoke detectors. There are many ways we can help.

    

     Cumberland County currently has 3 CERT teams. We are trying to build more in different areas of the County. If you are interested, sign up for a class now. If you want more information feel free to call 321-615-5191 or write to hopemillscert@gmail.com. You could also come to a meeting and see what we are about.
