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, under the direction of Program Manager, Greg St. James.

In March, Montgomery County CERT members elected their 2014-2015 Officers: Steve Peterson, President; Carl Brill, Vice President; and Tricia Laut, Treasurer. Steve, Carl, and Tricia are eager to carry on the continuing success of the Program.

In May 2014, Montgomery County CERT will continue its 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 on the May 2014 Storm Camp, please visit http://montgomerycert.org/storm-camp or click the Storm Camp tab above.

Montgomery County CERT will go on the road to present its award winning social media and situation reporting strategies at two national conferences. On May 14, 2014, we will be presenting at the GovSec conference in Washington, D.C. (http://govsecinfo.com/). Additionally, Montgomery County CERT will be presenting at the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) 80th Annual Conference & Expo in New Orleans, Louisiana on August 6, 2014 (http://www.apco2014.org/). APCO International is the world’s oldest and largest organization of public safety communications professionals providing expertise, professional development, technical assistance, advocacy and outreach.
