The Guttenberg Community Emergency Response Team (C.E.R.T.) partners with the Guttenberg Office of Emergency Management and Guttenberg Police Department in preparing to respond to disasters that may affect the town and its residents.
Guttenberg CERT educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.
Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional emergency responders are unable or not immediately available to help.
CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.
