Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Seeking New Volunteers

Canton Public Safety’s Emergency Management Division is seeking volunteers to join its Community Emergency Response Team (CERT).  The CERT Program educates its members about disaster preparedness for 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. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.

A new Basic CERT class is forming now.  For information on this class, or becoming a CERT member, contact William Hayes, Emergency Management Coordinator, by email to whayes@canton-mi.org, or by phone at 734/394-5357.
