Video  "IF NOT NOW..... WHEN"?



  The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) concept was developed and implemented by the City of Los Angeles Fire Department in 1985. They recognized that training citizens in basic disaster survival and rescue skills would greatly improve the ability of citizens to survive until first responders or other assistance could arrive.     











 The City of Rochester was the first C.E.R.T. program in New York State!
Rochester CERT instruction is a 9 week (27 hour) fun filled course that takes the student through topics like: 
Fire Supression, Emergency Medicine, Triage, Search and Rescue, Disaster Physcology, Incident Management and PODS Operations.
Your instructors from the Rochester Fire Department will teach you how to better protect you and your family in case of an emergency. Rochester CERT does not stop there! The Rochester Fire Department has established CERT Teams within the City of Rochester's neighborhoods. These teams can be called on to assist their neighbors in cases of natural or man-made disasters.

Simply put, Community Emergency Response Teams are groups of amateur emergency workers. CERT personnel receive basic training from emergency response professionals and work in the initial aftermath of a disaster to augment official emergency services. CERT members are not intended to replace a community's professional response capability, but rather to serve as an important supplement to it.


Preparedness can ease the way to recovery
when neighbors are helping neighbors.
