The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program educates volunteers about disaster preparedness for the hazards that may impact their area 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, allowing them to focus on more complex tasks.

Nassau County Emergency Management offers free Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Training Academies to help prepare individuals, neighborhoods, and business teams to respond to local hazards.
