Preparing for 2015 Family Emergency Safety Fair
CERT members are trained for emergencies and natural disasters.
Thank you for your interest and welcome to the Tara Hills Mobile Manor Community Response Team (THMM CERT) website.
The CERT Program is a nationwide program established under the authority of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
FEMA's goal for CERT is to do the greatest good for the greatest amount of people. An individual becomes a CERT Certified volunteer after attending eight, two and one-half hour classes and a six hour final training out in the field. The classes are hands-on training with instruction and practice during each session. Students are trained on basic first aid techniques, small fire suppression, search and rescue, emergency preparation, use of communication devices (FRS and HAM radio) and much more. Everything we are trained for may be used for saving a life in your community or in an emergency in your own home.
In the event of an emergency or major disaster, the nation's emergency services may not be available for a long period of time. FEMA suggests every household be prepared for at least 72 hours on their own. You Can't Predict Emergencies...But You Can Prepare For Them.

An important point, in the THMM CERT Program, although it is strongly recommended a individual becomes CERT trained, it is in no way a necessary requirement to be a member of our team. We welcome and help train volunteers into our team throughout the year.
