Twelve From Randolph Graduate CERT Program

Posted: July 10, 2006

Congrats to the 2006 CERT grads!

Twelve Randolph residents recently completed FEMA Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training offered by Randolph’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM). Graduation was held at the July 6th township council meeting.

The CERT Program educates people 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.

Congratulations to the following residents on their completion of the CERT training program:

Patrick Daly
