CERT Training - Morrow, First Deployable CERT Team in State

The City of Morrow CERT program was developed because of the need for a well-trained civilian emergency work force that can assist conventional emergency services during a disaster situation. The training program not only provides for community self-sufficiency, but it also enhances the effectiveness of existing emergency services. The unique training the CERT team members receive enables them to provide routine disaster relief to citizens. In turn, fire, police, and rescue personnel are able to turn their attention to more severe and life-threatening situations.

Through this unique program, people from the community, organizations, businesses, industry, and city employee groups will become members of CERT. Generous sponsors such as Cintas uniforms, Target, and Wal-Mart, and many others demonstrate the community's united commitment toward ensuring the best disaster preparedness possible for all citizens. The ability of businesses and community groups to effectively recover from the devastating effects of any disaster requires the active participation, planning, and cooperation of all levels of the population. The fundamental responsibility of preparedness, however, rests with every individual.

The benefits of this program are numerous. It has increased our overall level of disaster readiness, provided skills that people may use in day-to-day emergencies, enhanced the bond between government and community, increased community spirit, and improved the quality of life for the people of our city.
