Welcome to Okaloosa County CERT! 

A Partnership for a Safer and More Resilient Community

CERT is an integral part of Citizen Corps, the grass-roots movement that actively involves everyone in making our communities and our nation safer, stronger, and better prepared.

All over America, communities have organized Citizen Corps Councils to inspire people to take action and get involved. To learn more about Citizen Corps programs, visit www.citizencorps.gov.


The Okaloosa County Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people 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. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.
