Community Emergency Response Team

A product of the PCSO Citizens Posse, the PCSO Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) was created in 2023. 

CERT is made up of volunteers. CERT may be called upon during times of flooding, wildfires, mass casualty incidents, missing person calls, or to assist with deputy rehabilitation on extended calls during extreme temperatures. 

Members learn CPR, first aid, how to apply splints and tourniquets, and how to search and mark a house, and how to extinguish small fires. 

Members attend nine 4-hour classes and must pass a written test and practical evaluation.
