CERT educates individuals 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 training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT volunteers can assist others in their community following a disaster when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT volunteers are also encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking an active role in emergency preparedness projects.
EastTex Regional CERT is a core program of the Rowlett Citizen Corps Council and co-sponsored by Rockwall County Office of Emergency Management. The RCCC is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to disaster preparedness and family safety initiatives. See our website at: www.rowlettcitizencorps.org
