We continue to have limited activity as a result of the pandemic. Out CERT remains on standby to assist with running a MIPOD (Mass Inoculation Point of Dispensing), should we be deployed by the Chiefs in our communities. But, we were impactful on our communities in 2020 even with the limitations. Click here to see the REPORT OF TRI COMMUNITY CERT ACTIVITY FOR 2020
What is CERT?
We are volunteers that have completed extensive training enabling us to assist Public Safety Departments in the event of an emergency, in support of community activities, or as they determine there is a need.
Why "Tri Community?"
Our CERT encompasses Highland Heights, Mayfield Heights, and Mayfield Village, Ohio.
We encourage residents to apply for participation on our team. Please refer to the Contact Us tab for details. ATTENTION PROSPECTIVE TEAM MEMBERS: We are examining the opportunity to run a CERT training class in 2021, and we encourage you to apply for membership. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Or, please print and submit the attached application as soon as possible.

Team members practice various areas of CERT training including light search and rescue and disaster medical operations at the CERT Module Nine training exercise held on October 29, 2011
"The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community."
We are registered on The Citizen Corps Website
