Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT)

NOTICE: Application deadline has passed (April 10, 2009)

This page is for your information only.

We are looking for a few good women and men to join the Waterboro CERT Team. The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, shelter manager, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community.

Please submit letter of interest on or before April 10, 2009 to:
CERT Member C/O Town of Waterboro
24 Townhouse Road
East Waterboro, Maine 04030
