Information on Joining Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

If you are interested in helping in your community or other communities during a disaster, become a volunteer for our local Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). But don’t wait for disaster to strike—volunteer now.

We will have an information session on Monday evening October 21st in the second floor conference room of the Denville Town Hall building starting at 7pm. So stop on by and learn what the CERT program is all about.

The Community Emergency Response Training (CERT) training is offered by the Denville Twp Office of Emergency Management. Individuals will be trained in CERT learning proper communication, safety, fire suppression, search and rescue, medical triage/treatment/stop the bleed, psychology in disaster, standard response protocol, terrorism identification chemical, biological, radiation, nuclear or explosive (CBRNE) weapons deployed and Citizen Response in Active Shooter Events (CRASE). Cert members expand our First Responders capacity and allow First Responders to focus on life threatening events. CERT members are essential in communicating and the preparedness message to other residents in the communities during public events and fairs.
