'"What I have learned through CERT is to give back even more to humanity.  Because what we earn, we spend; what we win, we lose; but what we give, we keep forever."

Joseph C.

"CERT empowers citizens with the knowledge and skills to effectively help their communities and assist when a disaster strikes.  I highly recommend this practical training"
