CERT teams will focus on:
- Disaster Preparedness
- Fire Suppression
- Health and Medical
- Search and Rescue
- Disaster Psychology and CERT organization
- Terrorism and CERT
- Final Drill
CERT volunteers will be equipped with basic items that will include an identification badge, response vest, helmet, flashlight and medical kit.
