The participants have completed the eight-week Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) course where they learned how to assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. In Florida, this is especially helpful after hurricanes. The District has more than 20 CERT teams from various communities and organizations located within the district including Palm River, Bay Colony, Vineyards, Wilshire Lakes, Tarpon Cove, Naples Park, Pelican Bay, Pine Ridge, The Ritz-Carlton and Arthrex. More than 1,200 participants have graduated from the District’s CERT program. Learn more about CERT.
