Alameda CERT Team

The City of Alameda Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) trains volunteers to respond in disaster situations. When disaster strikes, CERT members support first responders, assist victims and organize volunteers. CERT members also help with non-emergency projects that improve the safety of Alameda.
