Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT)
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program 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 responders are 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.
We are looking for volunteers for this important team. No matter your age or physical abilities there is a position for you in GGCA CERT. This is an excellent opportunity to meet your neighbors and contribute to keeping Gulf Gate one of Sarasota’s best neighborhoods!
Gulf Gate is a large geographic area and we are very undersized considering what could happen if we are hit by a natural disaster. Contact Gulf Gate CERT for more information or to register for the next class.
