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.
Within Ocean Hills Country Club, we have approximately 100 CERT members, led by Bill Harms. We are on call for service to our local community as well as Oceanside or neighboring communities.
Join us and help yourself to become aware and ready for disasters of any type!!!
