What is AAACERT?
Anne Arundel – Annapolis Community Emergency Response Team (AAACERT) is a nonprofit organization that trains volunteers how to prepare for hazards and cope with emergencies. AAACERT courses and drills cover basic disaster prevention, preparation, and response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, communications, and emergency medical procedures. Our members volunteer with the Offices of Emergency Management for Anne Arundel County and City of Annapolis in support of emergency response and public safety.
The Los Angeles City Fire Department developed the CERT concept in 1985.
