    The Teen Community Emergency Response Team (Teen CERT) Program educates youth ages 15 to 18 about disaster preparedness for 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.   Learn how to protect yourself, your loved ones, your school, and your community.  

    Over the course of the Teen CERT program, you will learn the most up-to-date information through hands-on training in basic disaster preparedness, use of a fire extinguisher, disaster medical care, first aid training, search, and rescue techniques, and neighborhood team building.
