The Kitsap County Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program is based on the National CERT program and educates Kitsap County citizens about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact our area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, utility safety, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, Kitsap CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. Kitsap CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.
