    Website address: http://www.co.henry.ga.us/cert
    Brief Description: Protect yourself, your family, your neighbors, and your neighborhood… The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) program that helps educate citizens about hazards they may face and trains them in lifesaving skills so that they are better prepared to respond to emergency situations in their homes and communities. Initially, CERT programs were developed to assist communities in taking care of themselves in the aftermath of a major disaster when first responders are overwhelmed or unable to respond because of communication or transportation difficulties. As the CERT concept has taken hold across the country, however, CERT’s have become much more than originally envisioned. CERT’s have proven themselves to be an active and vital part of their communities’ preparedness and response capability. For example, CERT’s have been used to: Distribute and/or install smoke alarms and batteries to the elderly and disabled. Assist with evacuations and traffic control. Promote community awareness of potential hazards and preparedness measures. Supplement staffing at special events, such as parades. Act as victims in training exercises. CERT’s are an investment of local government’s time and resources. To capitalize on this investment, program sponsors can view CERT members as a volunteer resource that can assist with public safety activities. Such an approach will actively involve members in serving their communities beyond disaster response and add value to the CERT program.

    The CERT program includes training in Disaster Preparedness, Team Organization, Disaster Psychology, Radio Communications, Fire Safety and Suppression, Hazardous Materials Awareness, Disaster Medical Operations (such as triage, treating life threatening injuries, and patient assessment), Light Urban Search and Rescue, and a Disaster Simulation Exercise. Seasoned instructors from the Emergency Management Agency, Martinez-Columbia Fire Rescue, Gold Cross EMS, Grovetown Department of Public Safety and the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office volunteer their time to conduct the training.

    When emergencies happen, CERT members can give critical support to first responders, (who can easily become overwhelmed in major events), provide immediate assistance to victims, and organize spontaneous volunteers at a disaster site. CERT members are also called upon to assist other counties and states during major disasters. CERT members can also help with non-emergency projects that help improve the safety of the community, such as making public presentations, assisting with public safety awareness events, and assisting with community disaster exercises.

    The CERT training program is provided to Columbia County citizens who are 18 years or older at no cost. This program is 100% funded by Homeland Security Grant funds. Groups 13 and 14 have completed the CERT training program. Additional CERT training will be conducted in 2010. The 2010 training calendar will be posted within the near future.
