Standard Community Emergency Response Basic Training (CERT) is an active FEMA program which educates volunteers about disaster preparedness for the hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. CERT offers a consistent, nationwide approach to volunteer training and organization that professional responders can rely on during disaster situations, which allows them to focus on more complex tasks. Through CERT, the capabilities to prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters is built and enhanced.All Hands On is a source dedicated to educating government and municipality officials in the importance of practicing the CERT standard for emergency preparedness for the deaf.
Deaf CERT, is not CERT just taught in sign language it’s taught to deaf people in the same manner as it would be to the hearing. To keep a clear consistent message, we present it in the source language using the same manual, the same hours and issues the same certificate.
