"What is CERT?

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program is a national program that prepares people for emergency situations in their communities and neighborhoods. It was developed to bring citizens together and train them to recognize, respond and recover from a major emergency or disaster situation.

JaxCERT training provides Duval County residents basic disaster-response skills necessary to address the urgent needs of their community when professional first responders and emergency personnel are not immediately available.

Once trained, JaxCERT members are able to provide the following services to their neighborhoods:

  • Increase their neighborhood's disaster preparedness.
  • Assess damage after a disaster.
  • Extinguish small fires and teach fire safety.
  • Perform light search and rescue operations.
  • Perform triage and provide minor medical service to the injured.
  • Organize as a team.
2013 JaxCERT Class Schedules Basic training includes:
  • Program Orientation/Disaster Preparedness
  • Disaster Fire Safety
  • Disaster Medical Operations Part 1
  • Disaster Medical Operations Part 2
  • Light Search and Rescue Operations
  • Terrorism/Communications
  • Disaster Psychology/Team Organization
  • Disaster Exercise
