Community Encouraged to Sign Up for CERT Training
* Updated August 30, 7:43 AM
Hawaiʻi Island residents are encouraged to sign up for Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training scheduled in the coming weeks.
In partnership with Hawaiʻi County and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the goal of CERT is to promote partnering between emergency response agencies and the community.
“As resources are limited, building community resilience is the key to effective and quicker recovery,” officials stated. “Partnering with emergency response agencies and your community through the CERT program will help build community resilience.”
CERT training will take place in Hilo on Sept. 11, 18, 25 and Oct. 2. In Puna, training will be held Oct. 16, 23, 30 and Nov. 6.
