Welcome to the Montgomery County, Maryland Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) website. The Montgomery County CERT Program is managed by the Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service.In December 2013, Montgomery County CERT held our 10 Year Anniversary Reception at the Strathmore Mansion in Bethesda, MD attended by members, their guests, and Montgomery County Councilmember, Phil Andrews. Councilmember Andrews presented Montgomery County CERT with a proclamation marking December 12th as CERT Program Day. We also recognized Tom Smith, Anne Culver, and Kathee Henning for their dedication and support to CERT over the course of the 10 years of existence.
Beginning in March 2014 Montgomery County CERT will debut our new education and outreach program Storm Camp, which is a half day family workshop designed to improve the readiness and safety of the public. Storm Camp is a unique concept designed to reach the largest possible number of county residents. For more information, please visit http://montgomerycert.org/storm-camp/ or the Storm Camp tab above.
Montgomery County CERT was nationally recognized by FEMA for our innovative leveraging of technology during a March 2013 snowstorm. CERT members monitored social media platforms and provided real-time updates to officials within the County.
