Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program educates volunteers about disaster preparedness for the hazards that may impact their community 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. Through CERT, the capabilities to prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters is built and enhanced.
Clinton Township CERT meetings are open to the public. The team meets the first Wednesday of the month at 7:00 PM at the Annandale Hose Company No. 1 firehouse, 68 Beaver Ave, Annandale, NJ 08801, lower level meeting room.
