CERT Rodeo

February 13, 2021

For Sponsors + In-Kind Donations

The Harris County Citizen Corps will hold its 15th Annual CERT Rodeo. The event is designed to give CERT members an opportunity to practice skills introduced in the 8-week CERT training course and meet other CERT team members from across Texas and the United States.

CERT promotes a partnering between emergency management and response agencies and the people in the community that they serve. The goal is to train members of neighborhoods and workplaces in basic response skills. Then CERT teams are formed and maintained as part of the emergency response capability for their area.

If there is a natural or man-made event that overwhelms or delays the community’s professional responders, CERT members can assist others by applying the basic response and organizational skills that they learned during their CERT training. These skills can help save and sustain lives until help arrives. CERT members also can volunteer for special projects that improve a community’s preparedness.

WHEN | Saturday, February 13th, 2021 @ 8 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (Exhibits open 8 am – 2 pm)

WHERE | Harris County Fire & Sheriff’s Training Academy, 2318 Atascocita Road Humble, Texas 77396

Each year the CERT Rodeo event committee relies on the support of businesses that serve the emergency management industry to support the operation as sponsors and in-kind donors. The CERT Rodeo brings 500+ volunteer emergency responders together for training and recognition. Without our sponsors our ability to recognize CERT volunteers in a meaningful way is drastically reduced.
Bring your products, services and messages to an audience whose interests and skills align with your business goals. Expect to engage 500 event participants from at least 20 communities across the state of Texas whose services and activities benefit local emergency management and response communities.
