Community Emergency Response Team

East Haddam CERT

A small number of Residents from East Haddam have completed initial CERT training. Times the CERT members will assist Town agencies include: Disaster Response, Emergency Operations Center staffing, Health Emergency Response, Shelter Set up and Management, Animal Sheltering, and Disaster Preparedness Public Education.

CERT is a training program that prepares you to help yourself, your family, and your neighbors in the event of a disaster. During an incident, emergency service personnel may not be able to reach everyone right away. By getting trained in CERT, you will have the skills to help emergency responders save lives and protect property.

The initial training program includes fire safety, disaster preparedness, disaster psychology, terrorism, and first aid.

If you are interested in receiving cert training please contact Craig Mansfield at 860-873-5103 or email
