The Community Emergency Response Team program educates people on how to prepare for natural disasters.

Those who complete the course learn fire safety, light search and rescue and how to work with a team.

"It teaches you search and rescue, how to go into a building and search right to left, how to mark the building showing that you have been there and what was found so that other first responders coming behind you can go to more critical areas if they're needed somewhere else," said Laura Watson, a CERT volunteer.
