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.
