Joining a CERT Program in My Area

How can I join a CERT program/find the closest program in my area?


CERT programs serve in more than 3,400 communities nationwide.  CERT programs are formed by members of a neighborhood or workplace who want to be better prepared for the hazards threatening their communities and are typically sponsored, affiliated or created in partnership with a local fire department, law enforcement agency, or emergency management agency.

To get started, we recommend you first talk with one of those local officials.  Your State CERT Coordinator can also address questions about CERT in your state. View the information on the State Coordinator page to find your local contact. 
 
For additional information about the CERT programs throughout your State, please see our State Directory.  You can search your local area, and contact the CERT program closest to you.
