CERT (COMMUNITY EMERGENCY RESPONSE TEAM) TRAINING
CERT training provides private citizens with the basic skills needed to respond to immediate needs in their home, neighborhood, and community in the aftermath of a disaster, when emergency services are not immediately available.
This training is offered free to all Hillsborough residents. The curriculum is standardized nationally, and courses can be made up in other nearby cities.
HNN recommends that each neighborhood have at least one CERT-trained resident. Anyone interested in more in-depth emergency response and preparedness should enroll in this comprehensive class. Register online.
