CERT Program
The Hollywood Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program helps train volunteers to assist first responders in emergency situations in Hollywood.

CERT members:
  • Act as volunteers at a disaster site
  • Collect disaster intelligence to support first responder efforts
  • Give critical support to first responders in emergencies
  • Provide immediate assistance to victims
  • Participate in informative community outreach initiatives 

The role of a CERT volunteer is self-help until trained first response personnel arrive at the emergency site.
