Frenchtown Community Emergency Response Team

Supporting Our Community Through Education, Preparedness, And Good Works

Welcome to the Frenchtown Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) page.

The mission of Frenchtown CERT is “supporting our community through education, preparedness, and good works”.

Frenchtown Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) educates the community about disaster preparedness and trains volunteers in basic disaster response skills, such as: preventing accidents, fire safety, light search and rescue, basic medical operation, and building a personalized disaster kit. Working to do the greatest good for the greatest number of people, we support our community and first responders before, during, and after disasters and events.
