CERT members participate in a nationally recognized DHS training program designed to improve community preparedness in the event of a disaster. CERT members are trained in a partnering effort between emergency services and the people they serve. The 24-hour training course covers topics such as Introduction to Disaster Preparedness, First Aid, Light Search and Rescue, Fire Suppression and Disaster Psychology. Upon completion of their training, CERT members are then included in the emergency response resources for Stamford.
Our mission is to serve the people of Stamford by supporting the local emergency service agencies in disaster, crisis and emergency response, and by promoting safety education, emergency and disaster preparedness.
