CERT stands for Community Emergency Response Team.
Areas of interest:
There is one in virtually every Community District in the City, operating in conjunction with
New York City Emergency Management (NYCEM).
We are the CERT Team for our neighborhood (Brooklyn CD 14).
CERT teams are trained in light search and rescue, fire suppression, traffic control, triage, and emergency medical.
Our team also provides our neighbors with information about personal emergency preparedness.
