Organization Profile

The Community Emergency Response Team program trains community members to be better prepared to respond to emergency situations. CERT members learn about basic medical assistance, light search and rescue, and basic fire and hazardous materials safety.  When emergencies happen, CERT members can provide immediate assistance at the scene, give critical support to Alexandria first responders, and organize spontaneous volunteers at a disaster site. CERT members also participate in non-emergency projects that help improve the safety of the community.
