The River Vale Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is looking for additional volunteers to join the ranks of citizen volunteers within the Township.
This group is comprised of residents ages 18+ from the Township who receive specialized training in the various areas of emergency management and response.
The purpose of the CERT program is to train ordinary citizens to care for themselves, their family, their neighbors and finally, their community, in case of an emergency. These volunteers will help to improve the response and preparedness of the community and the emergency services.
The CERT training and education experience forms a crucial link between the community and the professional emergency response teams.
