Burnsville was the first city in Minnesota to organize motivated, volunteer residents into Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT).
What would you do if a tornado or other natural disaster devastated your neighborhood? Through CERT, residents are taught to work together in their neighborhoods to provide basic safety until emergency services arrive.
The program increases residents' ability to safely help themselves, their family and their neighbors in the event of a local emergency or natural disaster.
The Burnsville Fire Department, in collaboration with the cities of Bloomington and Richfield, are offering CERT emergency skills training to teach residents how to prepare for natural and man-made disasters.
Upcoming Training - Spring 2017
