Community Emergency Response Team (CERT)

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is also a volunteer group that is trained to respond to emergencies and assist the Police and Fire Departments in various ways. Our CERT has responded to flood events as well as providing valuable services during special events.

CERT Training

CERT training is a 24-hour course that encompasses light firefighting, first aid, and search and rescue. It is taught in-house but CERT training obtained from any certified instructor is accepted because the CERT curriculum is standardized throughout the nation.


If you are interested in participating in the training leading to an opportunity to volunteer in this manner please contact Denton County CERT or call Anita Otterson at 682.237.2947.
