Community Response Team training promotes a partnering effort between emergency services and the people they serve. The goal is for emergency personnel to train members of neighborhoods, community organizations, or workplaces in basic response skills. Community Emergency Response Team members are then integrated into the emergency response capability for their area.

If a disastrous event overwhelms or delays the community's emergency response, Community Emergency Response Team members can assist others by applying basic response and organizational skills that they have learned during training. These skills can help save and sustain lives following a disaster until help arrives. These skills can also be utilized during daily emergencies.

This free training takes place in eight separate two or three hour sessions. Whether you want to become a Community Emergency Response Team member or learn the disaster techniques to help yourself and your family, this training will greatly benefit you and your community.
