Lamorinda Community Emergency Response TeamServing Lafayette, Moraga, Orinda and surrounding unincorporated communities.
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program helps train people to be better prepared to respond to emergency situations in their communities.

Following a major disaster in the Napa Valley, first responders who provide emergency services will not always be able to meet the immediate demand for these services.
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about the hazards that affect the Napa Valley and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, personal preparedness, and disaster medical operations. In the Napa Valley the CERT training is provided though the collaborative efforts various emergency agencies and coordinated by Napa County and is generally offered on a Friday evening and all-day Saturday and Sunday.


The Montgomery County (Maryland) Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is sponsoring the fifth annual CERT conference in the National Capital Region. The conference is to provide advanced education and hands-on disaster preparedness training to CERT teams in the mid-Atlantic region and to provide an understanding of CERT capabilities to emergency management personnel, Saturday, June 20 and Sunday, June 21, 2015. Classes, lectures and workshops will be designed to broaden horizons and explore the possibilities for service by CERTs at home, at work, and in our communities.
Although the format has changed each year, the original goal for the conference remains to educate and provide networking opportunities and enhance cooperation among the region’s CERT teams.
When emergencies happen, CERT members can give critical support to first responders, provide immediate assistance to victims, and organize spontaneous volunteers at a disaster site.
The high number of number of victims, communication failures and road blockages will prevent people from accessing emergency services they have come to expect at a moment's notice.
People who go through CERT training have a better understanding of the potential threats to their home, workplace and community and can take the right steps to lessen the effects of these hazards on themselves, their homes or workplace.


CERT members can also help with non-emergency projects that help improve the safety of the community.
If a disaster happens that overwhelms local response capability, CERT members can apply the training learned in the classroom and during exercises to give critical support to their family, loved ones, neighbors or associates in their immediate area until help arrives. When help does arrive, CERTs provide useful information to responders and support their efforts, as directed, at the disaster site.
