The Bastrop County Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program is looking for citizens of Bastrop County that want be involved in their community. The 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, 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.
CERT Meetings are scheduled for the 4th Tuesday of each month at 6:30p. The meetings are held at the First National Bank meeting room next door to Beall's. Community members from all parts of the county are encouraged to attend.
