WHAT WE DO

DISASTER PREPAREDNESS

TRAINING AND OUTREACH

FOR EVERYONE!

THE PROGRAMS

The CERT program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains the in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. CERT helps the first responders. CERT is part of the community program in which neighbors help neighbors.

The DART program educates people about disaster preparedness for animals that impact their area and trains citizens on basic disaster response skills, such as trailering animals, relocation plans, and go bags. Using the training, DART helps the citizens plan evacuations. DART is also part of the community program in which neighbors help neighbors.

THE HARD TRUTH

60% of American adults have not

practiced what to do in a disaster

only 39% of respondents have

developed an emergency plan

80% of Americans live in counties that

have been hit with a weather-related disaster

East Mountain CERT received this trailer over 5 years ago from a Albuquerque CERT graduate and now emergency manager for Sandoval County, Seth Muller. We now have the decals on the side of the trailer thanks to Torrance County emergency manager Matt Propp. It just shows how we work together to help in our community as well as neighboring communities.
