Will You Help in an Emergency?

Are you willing to lend a hand when an emergency strikes our community or a neighboring city? We’re recruiting volunteers for our Community Emergency Resource Team (CERT). This team of volunteers is trained by the City’s Department of Emergency Management.

 

Fall CERT basic training begins Thursday, Aug. 23, 6:30-8:30 p.m. This unique program provides nine sessions to prepare for disasters, including basic first aid, fire safety and other disaster-related topics. Classes are at the Emergency Operations Center, 4125 W. Parker Road.

To apply you must live or work in Plano, be at least 18 years old, possess a valid driver license, be able to perform light-duty physical lifting and pass a background investigation. Sign up to volunteer for CERT online. If you have additional questions, call 972-769-4899.
