Greater Upper Marlboro CERT Team

UM CERT

The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program educates volunteers about disaster preparedness for the 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. CERT offers a consistent, nationwide approach to volunteer training and organization that professional responders can rely on during disaster situations, which allows them to focus on more complex tasks. Through CERT, the capabilities to prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters is built and enhanced. 

Founded in 2016, the Greater Upper Marlboro CERT Team serves the Town of Upper Marlboro, Greater Upper Marlboro, and Prince George's County during disasters and when called upon. 

The CERT Team meets on the 2nd Saturday of each month at 10a at the Upper Marlboro Town Hall. Interested in joining? Email CERT@UpperMarlboroMD.gov
