CERT class 2010Eastern Idaho Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is dedicated to assisting others in their communities following a disaster. Team members are educated and trained in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.

CERT training is free and promotes a partnership between emergency services and the people they serve in their individual communities. CERT members can help those in their immediate area following an event when professional responders are not immediately available.

CERT members maintain and refine their skills by participating in exercises and activities. They can also volunteer for projects that improve community emergency preparedness.
