Volunteering with Berkeley CERT
Next Volunteer Meeting: Thursday, December 12, 2013. 997 Cedar St. 7pm-9pm
CERT is a community program. CERT Volunteers are leaders in the community and are integral to the efforts to prepare Berkeley for disaster. Even before a disaster, Berkeley CERT Volunteers are responding to the community needs.
How Can You Help?
Volunteers help by getting trained and then training others. They provide preparedness outreach and education to the Berkeley public. They support local emergency response exercises and events. They provide leadership and mentoring to community groups getting started on their preparedness and training. The community is accountable to itself for its preparedness and training.
Current and future opportunities to join in working in your community include working on initiatives like:
- Training to be volunteer CERT Instructors
- Pet Preparedness
- Family and Youth Preparedness
- Radio Communications and Ham Radio
- Continuing Education and Specialized Topics in Preparedness and Emergency Response
- Renters and Property Owners Preparedness
- Neighborhood-based Trainings and Exercises
