These groups can provide immediate assistance to victims in our community, organize spontaneous volunteers who have not had the training, and collect disaster intelligence that will assist our professional responders with prioritization and allocation of resources following a disaster. The CERT course is taught through out the year by the Ewing Police Office of Emergency Management. CERT training includes disaster preparedness, disaster fire suppression, basic disaster medical operations, shelter operations, search/rescue operations and many other emergency response courses. We believe the CERT course will benefit any citizen who takes it. This individual will be better prepared to respond to and cope with the aftermath of a disaster. Over the last three years, the CERT program has trained many residents of our community. The Ewing Police Department Office of Emergency Management is proud to be the First organization to establish a CERT team in NJ and look forward to meeting the challenge of volunteerism given to us by The President of The United States.

Re: List of New Jersey CERT's

Postby itsadisaster » Mon Oct 18, 2010 2:45 pm

As fyi … Community Emergency Response Teams (CERTs) are 1 of 5 programs under Citizen Corps. CERT members actually get trained in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, and disaster medical operations and is usually delivered in 2-1/2 hour sessions, one evening a week over a 7 week period. Some communities offer courses no charge while others charge a small fee. And several communities even have Teen CERTs.

Some other programs under Citizen Corps include Fire Corps, Medical Reserve Corps (MRCs), USAWatch (a.k.a. National Neighborhood Watch) and Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS). These programs all rely on volunteers from local communities.

Some Affiliates and Organizations that work closely with Citizen Corps include American Radio Relay League (ARRL), The American Legion, Civil Air Patrol, Girl Scouts, Jaycees, National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (NVOAD) and many others.

If you don’t see a CERT posted above in your area (or if you can’t reach a CERT contact above since they do change hands sometimes), visit http://www.citizencorps.gov and search your zip code to see if there is a program near you.

And finally … check out a thread discussing Citizen Corps + various disaster/prep volunteer groups + online CERT courses at viewtopic.php?f=106&t=4030
