Training Programs & Services


Montgomery County CERT offers a variety of training and services to the Montgomery County Community, including teaching an expanded Community Emergency Response Team Training, CPR/AED, First Aid, and other classes. All our instructors are certified through FEMA and/or ASHI in their field of instruction.

The CERT team also likes to put our training to practice and is glad to help out the community. We are available as a resource at the request of the county and community organizations.

Our Training Programs

Our Mission is to train residents to be prepared for the emergency situations they may face in everyday life and for hazards that may impact the DC Metro area.
