CERT: THE MIAMI BEACH COMMUNITY EMERGENCY RESPONSE TEAM
CERT is a group of neighbors that receives special training that enhances their ability to recognize, respond to and recover from a major emergency or disaster situation. CERT is about readiness, people helping people, rescuer safety, and doing the greatest good for the greatest number of people. CERT is a positive and realistic approach to emergency and disaster situations. Through training offered by the Department of Emergency Management, participants learn how to put out small fires; provide basic medical aid; perform light search & rescue; assess damage after a disaster; and organize procurement of supplies.
The City of Miami Beach has partnered with the Miami-Dade Office of Emergency Management to provide CERT classes to residents and businesses of Miami Beach. We typically offer one calss in the spring and one in the fall in the City, but other courses are offered by Miami-Dade County (and the certification is the same) .
