Members of Randolph’s CERT give critical support to first responders in emergencies, provide immediate assistance to victims, organize spontaneous volunteers at a disaster site, and collect disaster intelligence to support first responder efforts.

CERT team members receive basic-level training in the following areas:

  • basic first aid
  • family disaster preparedness
  • disaster fire suppression
  • medical operations
  • CERT operations
  • disaster mental health
  • basic emergency management
  • disaster simulation

Total training is usually about 18 hours, scheduled in 2-4 hour modules, over a period of weeks or months, in order to address the scheduling needs of team members. Training courses, student materials and equipment are provided free of charge.
