In addition, the Ewing Township Office of Emergency Management coordinates actual disaster response/recovery operations.

 

Community Emergency Response Team


     
The Ewing, NJ Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) program trains citizens to be better prepared to respond to emergency situations. Our CERT members give critical support to first responders (police, fire, emergency medical services) they provide immediate assistance to victims, organize volunteers at a disaster site, and collect disaster intelligence to support first responder efforts. These groups can provide immediate assistance to victims in our community, organize spontaneous volunteers who have not had the training, and collect disaster intelligence that will assist our professional responders with prioritization and allocation of resources following a disaster. The CERT course is taught through out the year by the Ewing Police Office of Emergency Management. CERT training includes disaster preparedness, disaster fire suppression, basic disaster medical operations, shelter operations, search/rescue operations and many other emergency response courses. We believe the CERT course will benefit any citizen who takes it. This individual will be better prepared to respond to and cope with the aftermath of a disaster. Over the last three years, the CERT program has trained many residents of our community. The Ewing Police Department Office of Emergency Management is proud to be the First organization to establish a CERT team in NJ and look forward to meeting the challenge of volunteerism given to us by The President of The United States.
