What is CERT?
Get prepared! The Arvada Community Emergency Response Team (Arvada CERT) is a volunteer emergency response team that was started in partnership with the City of Arvada and the Arvada Fire Protection District. Arvada CERT Members are trained to be ready for disasters and will be better able to help themselves and their neighbors respond and recover from emergencies. CERT Members become part of a specialized team that can help our local first responders on special projects related to emergencies and disasters.
