Volunteer CERT membership

Dear CERT Applicant,


Thank you for your interest in applying to become a volunteer CERT member for the Town of Branford. All of us involved in Emergency Management are encouraged by your participation. The town’s intention is to accept applications throughout the month of December and select 25-30 candidates for training which will begin in January 2007.


As a volunteer CERT member your mission in the community will consist of supporting emergency operations during times of disaster or other times when the resources of first responders are overwhelmed. These missions will include; sheltering operations, commodities distribution, basic first aid, light search and rescue, minor traffic control, and any other tasks that are determined as necessary to support the welfare of our citizens.


We are developing an excellent training program utilizing emergency services professionals teaching a nationally recognized format that I am confident each participant will benefit from immensely. We are including some “hands on” portions so that you may apply what you learn during the course. The training consists of approximately 30-40 hours with training times that will most likely be scheduled during evenings and weekends. All training, training materials and refreshments will be provided free of charge under a federal grant program. Upon completion of the training you will receive a CERT response kit and a certificate of completion.


Please return your application to the Branford Police Department at 33 Laurel Street by January 15, 2007 to the attention of “Lieutenant Morgan”.  If selected, you will be notified and informed of the training schedule.

 (Application is available here)

If you have any questions, please contact me at 203-315-3914.
