Incident Command System Training
We recommend that all CERT members learn about the Incident Command System (ICS) and NIMS. FEMA offers web-based training, so that you can complete the courses at your convenience:
IS-100.C: Introduction to Incident Command System, ICS-100
IS-200.B: ICS for Single Resources and Initial Action Incidents
IS-700.B: National Incident Management System (NIMS) An Introduction
IS-800.D: National Response Framework An Introduction
CERT Volunteer Hours
In the event of a disaster, our community needs to ensure that our CERT's are trained and ready to help with the immediate needs of first responders and our community. To aid in evaluating future training opportunities, classes, activities, and to build greater support of Town members, it will be very helpful to know where our current efforts are being placed and how many hours of community service our CERT's are devoting to their own emergency preparedness and to the resilience of our CERT program and our overall Town.
The Volunteer Hours Submission form will give you an easy way to provide information on the volunteer hours that you and each CERT member have participated in towards the CERT program.
This simple 10-question form should take less than 5 minutes to complete each month. Upon completion of a CERT-related activity, please use the submission form as needed to log your volunteer time.
