Community Emergency Response Team
A Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is a group of people who receive special training to enhance their ability to recognize, respond to, and recover from emergency and disaster situations. Teams are trained to take care of themselves and others before, during, and after an emergency. As an organized team, individuals can provide vital services while waiting for emergency responders.
CERT in SachseSachse has an all-disasters approach to emergencies.
Among the more likely emergencies in Sachse are fires and weather-related situations such as tornadoes and flash flooding. CERT members also assist with crowd and traffic control during community events such as the July fireworks show and the Christmas parade.
