Community Emergency

Response Team (CERT)

Mini-Grants 

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.

 

Serve Alabama, in partnership with the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA) through the Homeland Security Grant Program, is issuing a Request for Proposal for counties interested in starting or maintaining a CERT Program.
