There is a very good chance that your neighborhood will be on its own during the early stages following a catastrophic disaster. After a catastrophic disaster, citizens will volunteer to help. But without proper training, these people may ex- pose themselves to potential injury or even death. Experience has shown that basic training in disaster survival and res- cue skills improves the ability of citizens to survive until emergency responses or other assistance arrives.
respond after catastrophic disasters—such as hurricanes, tornadoes and other major emergencies—the City of Sunrise Office of Emergency Management has implemented a Com- munity Emergency Response Team (CERT) training program. With this program, Sunrise becomes part of a national network of CERT communities.
