OEM Tip of the Week: Get CERT-ified!

New York City Office of Emergency Management (OEM) presents this week’s Tip of the Week: Get CERT-ified! OEM’s Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) members support their communities by assisting with emergency education and response. CERTs are located throughout the five boroughs and support the efforts of New York City's first responders before, during, and after disaster.  

Emergency services personnel are the best equipped to respond to disasters. During non-emergency situations, NYC CERTs educate their communities about emergency preparedness by working with the Ready New York program and building community disaster networks. 

CERT members undergo an intensive 10-week training program that raises awareness about emergencies and disasters and provides basic response skills needed for fire safety, light search and rescue, disaster medical operations, and traffic control. Want to assist your community during times of emergency? Become part of the New York City CERT program. Training cycles are held throughout the year.

For more information on the CERT program, download the brochure here
