Join The Emergency Response Team (RCERT)

We manage, train, and lead the Rockland Community Emergency Response Team (RCERT). RCERT is a FEMA trained emergency and disaster response team focused on preparing the greater Rockland County region and its citizens for emergencies and disasters. In an era of global environmental problems such as globlal climate change it is important today that we not only mitigate these serious problems but also build resilience for the seemingly inevitable impacts of a warming climate. Join CERT and become trained in everything from light search and rescue to CPR and Disaster First Aid at no cost to you. The only thing you need to give is your time to volunteer. We are creating a more adaptive, resilient, and capable community preparing for everything and working to mitigate the impact of emergencies and disasters.
