Henrico CERT Training
The purpose of the Henrico County Community Emergency Response Team (HCCERT) is to provide training to citizens so that they can offer assistance immediately following a disaster when local public safety resources may be overwhelmed. HCCERT members learn basic first aid, search and rescue, and fire suppression techniques. More importantly, HCCERT members learn how to PREPARE for a disaster long before one occurs. By being prepared and knowing how to respond, HCCERT members will be able to assist family, friends, neighbors, or coworkers following a disaster until help arrives.
