CERT volunteers provide disaster response support services to emergency management and public safety agencies following a disaster. Services range from debris clean up to damage assessment. CERT also assists with safety-related services at community events, such as traffic control and first aid.
CERT services are intended to support public safety and other responders and assist agencies in filling the gaps that often occur when a disaster overwhelms local resources.
North Coast Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is a team of volunteers trained and prepared to help the community during disasters. Volunteers provide a variety of disaster and safety services in communities across Erie, Huron and Ottawa counties.
