CERT ACTION & SERVICE

The Westshore Regional CERT proudly supports its

communities—assisting in public safety force training

exercises, responding to communitywide emergencies

and participating in other community service projects.

With basic training completed, CERT members assist in

community disasters by:

Conducting an initial review in their homes or

workplaces.

Reducing immediate dangers by turning off utilities,

suppressing small fires, evacuating the area and

helping others.

Treating people in the immediate area.

Working with fellow CERT members and volunteers to establish a

command post, staging area, and medical triage and treatment

areas.

Collecting damage information and developing a plan of

operations based on life-saving priorities and resources available.

Establishing and maintaining communication with professional

first responders.

Applying their training to other situations where CERT can make

a difference.
