face=Arial color=green size=2>style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: green; FONT-FAMILY: Arial">CERT training started in Columbia w:st="on">County in January 2004 with citizens from all over Columbia County volunteering their time to learn emergency response skills that make our community safer.  CERT members have made a difference in our community in numerous ways, as well as helping Hurricane Katrina victims in w:st="on">Gulfport, MS last year.  size=2>style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: green; FONT-FAMILY: Arial">    face=Arial color=black size=2>

face=Arial color=green size=2>style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: green; FONT-FAMILY: Arial">The CERT program includes training in disaster preparedness, fire suppression, disaster medical operations (such as triage, treating life threatening injuries, assessment, treatment and hygiene), light urban search and rescue, team organization, disaster psychology and a disaster simulation exercise.



Seasoned instructors from the Emergency Management Agency, Martinez-Columbia Fire Rescue, Gold Cross EMS, Grovetown Department of Public Safety, Columbia County Sheriff’s Office, and the Augusta Chapter of the American Red Cross volunteer their time to conduct the training.



When emergencies happen, CERT members can give critical support to first responders, (who can easily become overwhelmed in major events), provide immediate assistance to victims, and organize spontaneous volunteers at a disaster site.   CERT members are also called upon to assist other counties and states during major disasters.



CERT members can also help with non-emergency projects that help improve the safety of the community, such as operating the Mobile Operations Center (MOC), making public presentations, assisting with public safety awareness events, and assisting with community disaster exercises.
