Menlo Fire CERT Members

Each neighborhood has trained CERT leaders and CERT members, who have agreed to volunteer their help during a disaster.

These CERT members are contacted during an incident and asked to convene at a designated rally point.

The CERT teams then set up a command structure and make use of equipment to provide Community & Public Safety support as needed.

The CERT team is trained to support communications, gather information, provide basic medical, and more.
